Dr. Wade Hall Makes Donation of Historical Southern Memorabilia

NewSouth author Wade Hall has made a generous donation to The University of Alabama’s W. S. Hoole Special Collections Library. The gift, which includes books, sheet music, sound recordings and photographs, now comprises the Wade Hall Collection of Southern History and Culture.

Publisher‚Äôs Bindings Online, a digital archive project which collects decorative book bindings from 1815-1930, has selected over 1,000 titles from the Wade Hall Collection for the project, including many signed first-edition books by Southern authors. “I am delighted with the many dimensions being discovered in my collections by the faculty of the library,” said Dr. Hall, “as well as the students, scholars and historians who are using my donations to the University of Alabama.”
