Method of Acquisition

The Mickey A. Jilton Collection was bought by Mickey A. Jilton from an antique dealer on the Kingsport Highway. The dealer had obtained the books from records discarded when the Johnson City City Hall moved from its old location at 201 West Market to its present building. Mr. and Mrs. Jilton donated the collection to the Archives of Appalachia in February of 1980.
