Archives of Appalachia
East Tennessee State University’s Archives of Appalachia was established in 1978. The original core of the collection came from two ETSU Research Advisory Council projects. The first project was initiated in 1958 with the acquisition of the Washington County Court Records. A space in the library was designated for the records and this eventually morphed into what was referred to as the library archives. The second project, the Oral History Archives (1968-1972), arose from the work of professors Thomas Burton and Ambrose Manning. Burton and Manning were also influential in the establishment of the Archives of Appalachia and the Burton-Manning Collection continues to aid researchers in Appalachian folklore and music.
