THANKS and HELP….PLEASE!
KNOXVILLE HERITAGE has been significantly better received and used than we ever imagined. Many of you have shared with us how you have used the site to connect with important; times, people, events and places that shaped your life. We are very pleased to have helped in this way and grateful for your sharing your feelings with us. At the end of this blog, we have listed the many of you who have helped us make www.KNOXVILLEHERITAGE.com a reality…and a success.
I would like to ask each of you to help us expand our site in the areas where we have gaps. Many of you have photos, papers, yearbooks and other memorabilia that we might borrow for the short time that it takes to scan it. By doing this we can make it digitally available over the internet to others just like us who love to relive some happy days from the past. Please help us collect the following:
Yearbooks…We have been able to collect all of the Knoxville High and East High Yearbooks and they are available on the website. We need some additional ones from Central, Fulton and Holston. You can see which ones we need by clicking here. http://knoxvilleheritage.com/high-school/yearbooks/
School Newspapers…We have many from East High. We don’t have and therefore need those from years 1951 thru 1955 and from 1964 thru 1968. We also are in need of many Blue and White newspapers from Knoxville High School. By clicking here you can see which ones we have and which we need http://knoxvilleheritage.com/high-school/class-newspapers/knoxville-high-school-newspapers/. PLEASE help us make these available by lending us what you or those you know might have.
Photos and Photo Albums…We have many photos from various venues including; youth sports, high school, historic Knoxville etc. If you have some that might be of wide interest, please contact us. We also have two Photo Albums or Scrapbooks posted. We have another in the works that is both historic and will be of great interest to people all over Knoxville and beyond. If you have one that you think others would enjoy please contact us.
You may read this and feel initially that “I can’t help…I have none of these items.” Well, they are out there…somewhere. And many would like to see them. Think about what you might have and what others might have and give us an e-mail shout at RossGreene@KnoxvilleHeritage.com. We’ll be grateful…and many others will be also.
Now…with fear and trepidation that I will leave someone off the list of those who graciously helped all of us “heritage nuts” by contributing materials…here is the list as best my limited and old brain can remember. Please let me know if there are omissions and I will correct them. Also, please chalk such errors up to innocent stupidity and not malicious intent.
