“Gold in that Old Desk”

Two weeks ago I drove down to Winterville, NC for a JLP event at the Coffee Shack.  There I met writer Mark Rutledge who works for the local newspaper in adjacent Greenville, the Daily Reflector, part of the Cox family of news and media outlets.  Mark wrote a good news story on the event.  Then on November 6 he published this thoughtful column about the vast collection of materials left behind by his late father.  He downplays the historical significance of this collection.  But it sounds eminent to me.

P.S. We scanned the old school clipping (thanks, Mom!) because Cox has a paywall for web access.  If one of their outlets without a paywall syndicates Mark’s column we’ll link it here.  Update:  HERE is the Sarasota (FL) Herald-Tribute link.
