Fries Exhibit located in Special Collections and University Archives
From Elizabeth McVoy
Last year, the University Libraries’ Special Collections and University Archives department received a $68,722 grant to preserve and make accessible decades of materials that tell the complex story of Fries, Virginia, and its textile mill.
The grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, the grants-making arm of the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration, will fund a one-year archivist position to process the collection, organize community events, and promote the town’s history through outreach and exhibits.
Exhibit items are no longer on display but may be viewed by request at Special Collections and University Archives, located on the first floor of Newman Library.
