A View to Hugh

One of my favorite things about my current job is getting to pick cover images for C&RL News. While I have broken the usual trend and commissioned original artwork, most of the covers are from archives and exhibits that are sent in from various libraries. Today I received some pictures and a link to an online collection of excellent photographs from a North Carolina photographer named Hugh Morton. The UNC Chapel Hill Libraries acquired his archives and are documenting the collection on a blog called A View to Hugh. In addition to posting selected images and commentary, the blog includes some behind the scenes looks at the processing of the collection. And it won a 2008 Best Archives on the Web award. Very cool!
