Abstract:
Grace Evelyn Haynes opened the Huckleberry Mountain Workshop Camp and Artists' Colony near Hendersonville in 1939. The nationally-known camp was modeled on the McDowell Colony in Peterboro, NH, the nation's oldest artists' colony. During the its twenty-year existence, the camp provided instruction to hundreds of American students and a number from several foreign countries in a variety of arts that included poetry, painting, music, drama, radio scriptwriting, weaving, pottery, and photography. Bishop recounts the activities at the camp. Today, many of the camp's buildings still stand, including the two-story assembly hall. Dr. Ida Simpson, Duke University sociology professor, and her son Frank are working with the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources to preserve the camp's architecture and history and to have it listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Abstract:
The State Highway Commission, forerunner of the North Carolina Department of Transportation, began naming state roads and bridges in 1917. Over four hundred highways, bridges, ferries, and other structures have been given honorary names. The list grows by fifteen to twenty names a year. The state list does not include the thousands of secondary roads and city streets that city councils and boards of commissioners have the authority to name. Bishop discusses what the NCDOT requires to consider a naming request and provides examples of what has been named.

Ehringhaus were charged with providing aid to this especially destitute demographic. Several New Deal programs targeted the plight of farmers like the Agricultural Adjustment Administration (AAA) the Resettlement Administration (RA).
