Betty H. Carter Women Veterans Historical Project Celebrates 20 Years and Announces Annual Luncheon

The Betty H. Carter Women Veterans Historical Project (WVHP) began with a luncheon in 1998 to honor the unrecognized military service of women, including many Woman's College (now UNCG) alumnae.

Thanks to the generosity of Glenda Schillinger, UNCG alumna and U.S. Air Force Nurse Corps veteran, tickets to the November luncheon will be free. As always, the luncheon is open to the public and all are invited.

On September 13, Abraham Lincoln's Political Debates Between the Honorable Abraham Lincoln and the Honorable Stephen A. Douglas was presentedto Chancellor Gilliam to commemorate the 125th anniversary of UNC Greensboro. The book was chosen by the members of the Walter Clinton Jackson Society at the Third Annual Members Choice event in April along with the other volumes that were added to the Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections & University Archives.

In Memoriam: Gaylor F. Callahan

Gaylor F. Callahan, University Libraries, died suddenly on August 3, 2017.  Gaylor received her BA (1974) and MA (1977) in English and her MLIS (1990) from UNCG.  She also pursued graduate studies at Duke University.  Most of her career was devoted to the Libraries. She worked in Circulation and Reserves while a student and after graduating worked in the Serials Department.

Since 1984 Gaylor served as the Interlibrary Loan Borrower and helped countless researchers across campus obtain the materials they needed to complete their projects successfully.  If you look at the acknowledgments in many UNCG faculty publications you will see their gratitude for Gaylor’s invaluable assistance.  Gaylor also taught English at Elon University, UNCG and Duke.  It is hard to imagine Jackson Library without Gaylor and she will be greatly missed.

LSTA is the only federal funding program for libraries. Most of its resources flow to each state through the IML…

"Learning the Apostles' Creed: A Christian Mannes Bileeve, Lyric, and Sciences of the Heart" March 7

Professor Nicole Smith, from the University of North Texas, will be giving a talk on her research on A Christian Mannes Bileeve.  This text, a vernacular commentary on the Apostles’ Creed, stands as an exceptional example of a didactic text used by women religious to teach ecclesiastical doctrine. Most remarkable is, in comparison to other explanations of the Creed, CMB’s use of a variety of genres from example to lyric in its explanation of Christ’s Passion in Article IV: “Under Pontius Pilate, He suffered, died, and was buried.” At the most affective moment in the text, these lyrics and examples cultivate love and “kindness” in ways to reveal that “heart knowledge” (sapientia ) and “head knowledge” (Scientia ) are not mutually exclusive.  In this way, CMB stands as an exception to those other texts of affective piety and spiritual devotion that often, as scholars have argued, conflate scientia and sapientia.  The talk will be held March 7, 2017 in the Hodges Reading Room from 5-6:30…
