Abstract:
An examination of Sir Walter Raleigh's first colony at Roanoke to trace the details of early Anglo-Indian exchange. Because the colony lasted for so short a period of time, because it existed over an extremely limited geographic area, and because this European presence did not result in domination and eradication of Indian peoples in this area, Roanoke allows for the close compass examination of the nature of Anglo-Indian relations in their infancy.

Abstract:
The first in a series of articles examining of the formative years of industrial electric supply systems, specifically the Southern Power Company that would become the Duke Power Company in 1924. The Duke company differed from most other investor-owned utilities in that the power was generated from a single system, it was financially autonomous thanks to the large investment of capital from the Duke brothers, plants and dams were designed and built by in-house engineers, the dams provided conservation benefits long before such things were mandated or tax funded, and Duke power became a national leader in its field by pioneering with numerous technologies.

Abstract:
A look at the work of surveyors and cartographers Jonathan Price, John Strother, and Joshua Potts. Price and Strother published the first actual survey and map of North Carolina in 1798, and Potts' first map came in 1801. All three significantly advanced the cartography of the state during their careers and their work formed the basis for subsequent maps and plans for fortification of Wilmington and the Cape Fear River.
