We’re happy to announce that one of our most recent (and significant) acquisitions is currently undergoing processing. In early April 2017, we acquired several boxes of manuscript material including photographs, correspondence, ledgers, and scrapbooks from the estate of Mary Hutton of Elkton . Mary Hutton was a graduate of Madison College and descendant of Charles L. Davis (1874-1960) of Singers Glen. This collection, when fully arranged and described, will contribute greatly to the study of three generations of local families – Davis, Kline, and Hutton -, Rockingham County history, and the history of James Madison University.

Happy Exam Week Eve! In the spirit of procrastination and putting off studying for finals, here’s a gem from the archives from an overworked, homesick student like yourself. May you feel a sense of solidarity in the fact that students have always dreaded finals.
In an effort to meet the growing demand for access to the Shenandoah National Park Oral History Collection, we have moved the oral histories to the Scholarly Commons platform.
