Dr. Matthew Booker's suburban history class meets with Special Collections

Dr. Matthew Booker's HI 491-002 class (Suburban Nation: Suburbs in American History) recently met with Special Collections and took a "deep dive" into some of the Landscape Architecture/Greenways collections . The course is the capstone research seminar for History majors at NCSU, and one of their primary goals is to produce a well-designed, well-researched, and original research paper. The students are learning how to use Special Collections archival materials as they develop their paper topic. Collections that are proving to be of special interest include the Lewis Clarke Collection as well as the William L. Flournoy, Jr., Papers . We'll keep you posted as students continue to explore the collections during the research process!
