#OwnVoice: East Carolina Manuscript Collection


The East Carolina Manuscript Collection acquires historical manuscript materials related to North Carolina, the tobacco industry, worldwide missionary activities, and American military history, especially naval and maritime history. Currently the collection is considered one of the leading repositories in the nation for modern naval and maritime history. Letters, diaries, photographs, financial and legal records, genealogical notes, reports, speeches, oral histories and other unpublished materials covering the period from before 1800 to the present provide a wealth of primary source materials for a vast array of research topics.


Here you will find just some of the #OwnVoice resources currently available in the East Carolina Manuscript Collection. More materials can be found in Joyner Library's East Carolina Manuscript Collection or electronically in the Library Catalogue.
