Abstract:
In 1737, Andrew Duche was the first English colonist in the new world to make porcelain from clay he received from the Cherokee Indians of western North Carolina. After initial enthusiasm and financial success, sales in porcelain from Cherokee clay waned until the 1760's. In 1767, potter Josiah Wedgwood of England reintroduced the product to the British Empire when he acquired Cherokee clay from the Cherokee village of Ayoree in western North Carolina. This was done through the work of his agent, Thomas Griffiths, who also provided a trove of information about Cherokee society and Indian-English trade relations.

Abstract:
This article examines the history of the Edwin Holt family with regards to the industrial and business practices of 19th century North Carolina. This provides insight into the development and impact of industrialization in North Carolina before, during, and after the Civil War. Already established before the Civil War, the Holt family was able to benefit from the war financially, as well as maintain control of their business assets after hostilities ended. This illustrates the continuity from the Old South to the New South, not through the traditional Southern plantation, but through Southern industry.

In 1809, the father of American ornithology Alexander Wilson took a tour of the South, including North Carolina, to collect information about local birds and drum up subscribers for his extensive and costly book series, 'American Ornithology.' His success in both collecting bird data and subscribers in the South all but assured the success of the book series.
