The Thomas E. Watson Papers Digital Collection
The Thomas E. Watson Papers Digital Collection is made possible through a grant from the Watson-Brown Foundation of Thomson, Georgia.
Initial planning for the grant was undertaken in 2005-2007 by Natalia Smith of the Carolina Digital Library and Archives (CDLA), Lynn Holdzkom and Tim West of the Southern Historical Collection, and Peggy Myers, of UNC-Chapel Hill Libraries Administration Department.
The principal investigators for the project were Natalia Smith and Lynn Holdzkom. Maggie Dickson served as the project manager from September 2007 to December 2009, and Stephanie A. Williams served as the project's Web designer and programmer from June 2008 to December 2009. Graduate assistants who worked on the project include Amy Johnson, Brody Selleck, and Joyce Chapman.
Archival materials owned by UNC-Chapel Hill and some materials owned by the Watson-Brown Foundation were scanned by Brody Selleck in the Digital Publishing Center (DPC) in the CDLA, with the assistance of Bill Richards, Fred Stipe, and Rita Van Duinen. Some periodicals and pamphlets in the collection were digitized using Scribe technology in the DPC.
