Abstract:
On July 2, 1972, Morehead City, N.C. will celebrate “Midgett Day”, sponsored by the U.S. Coast Guard, to honor the Midgett family and their tradition of coastal lifesaving that has spanned nearly 100 years, producing more than 150 Coast Guard careers and resulting in seven Gold and three Silver Lifesaving Medals, our nation's highest award for saving a life. The Midgett family's tradition of service to coastal North Carolina pre-dates the Coast Guard and includes meritorious service in its predecessor, the U.S. Lifesaving Service.

Abstract:
After founding the Electronic Accounting Card Company in 1957, Edgar “Bucky” Snider sold his business to Control Data Corporation of Minneapolis in 1968, but remained, under terms of the $7 million dollar stock deal, as its President until January 1971. Snider then founded a new company, the High Point Electronic Card Company, whose success enabled him to buy his old company back from Control Data Corporation, which was now experiencing financial difficulties. Snider's new company, an amalgamation of his now expanded CDC division and his new High Point Electronic Card Company, was called NEC, or the National Electronic Card Company. NEC employs 120 persons at its High Point base, along with approximately 100 employees in it five branch plants.

Abstract:
In 1773, thousands of Scottish citizens from the Isle of Skye immigrated to North Carolina's Cape Fear Valley region to escape unaffordable rent increases. To celebrate their new lives, the immigrants created a new dance called “America”, which was performed to a brisk reel. The accompanying song, “Over the Isles to America”, is still a popular folk song in Scotland, according to Scottish folk song authority James E. Scott.

Abstract:
Built in 1900 by the newly formed Seaboard Airline Railroad, the Hamlet Station, in Hamlet N.C., was once the principal stop for refueling and crew exchanges between large northern cities and the deep south. Although it has been recently added to the National Historic Register, the terminal is slated for replacement and hopes are that the building will be saved and converted to a museum.
