Textiles, Teachers, and Troops


About the project

Textiles, Teachers, and Troops makes available more than 175,000 digital images including photographs, manuscripts, rare books, scrapbooks, printed materials, and oral histories documenting the social and cultural development of Greensboro from Reconstruction to World War II. By documenting the vitally important influence of the textile industry, public and postsecondary education, and the massive World War II military presence, Textiles, Teachers, and Troops will provide context for understanding the growth of Greensboro from a town of two thousand residents into one of the leading manufacturing and education centers in the Southeast.

This project is made possible through funding from the federal Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the State Library of North Carolina. The project is hosted through the resources of UNCG University Libraries and its Department of Electronic Resources and Information Technology.
