North Carolina in the First World War

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of WWI, Joyner Library presents two dynamic exhibitions that explore North Carolina’s participation in World War I. 

In the Janice Hardison Faulkner Gallery, on loan from the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, a traveling exhibition commemorating the U.S. involvement in World War I, NC First World War.  In addition, artifacts from Joyner Library’s collections including excerpts from Dorothy Repiton Knox’s scrapbook will be showcased in this exhibition. Letters and mementos tell the story of life and her friendships with soldiers and pilots from Charlotte, NC stationed briefly at Camp Greene.

In the Verona Joyner Langford NC Collection exhibit space, North Carolina in the First World War pays homage to relevant printed primary and secondary resources found in the NC Special Collections including a rare volume entitled, Tar Heel War Record.  Of special interest are a group of loan artifacts related to the service of Pvt.
