BDC Launches 2nd Digital Collection

The Library was fortunate to have received the Lucille Hasell Culp Collection in April 2007. For the past 4 years, staff, docents, and a SC SHRAB grant funded photographs archivist have completed various tasks to get us to the point where we could upload a selection of 300 of the best and most significant images to share. We are very fortunate indeed to be able to rely upon the assistance of the Lowcountry Digital Library to make the "Lucille Hasell Culp Collection: A Celebration of Beaufort, South Carolina" a reality.
