By Jeff Forret
The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) is home to one of the finest weaving archives in the nation—the Churchill Weavers collection. Comprised of more than 30,000 handwoven textiles and related weaving and business records, this collection promises to enrich many areas of scholarship and exhibition research, especially those related to labor history, the history of 20th century capitalism, material culture, and the history of Appalachia.
The journal Agricultural History is seeking two book review editors to assume the position in January 2017. One editor would work with books from US-based presses, and one would handle non-US presses. Potential editors will have a terminal degree in her/his field and considerable experience in the area of agricultural and rural history.
I've recently edited and updated my collection of links for historical newspapers that should be of interest to this list. In addition to reorganizing the main page for improved ease of use, I've added a significant collection of links to external websites with holdings of interest to H-South members. I also added another page of links to google books scanned versions of The Missionary Herald (Boston) 1806-1861. The Missionary Herald was the organ of the American Foreign Missions Board of the Congregationalist denomination.
