Abstract:
F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, lived much of their famously troubled lives in the mountains of North Carolina. Fitzgerald, who was from Baltimore, visited western North Carolina in February 1935, when traveling to Tryon in Polk County. The Sayre family had summered in Polk County, in Saluda, ten miles from Tryon, since Zelda was ten years old. Both F. Scott and Zelda returned to western North Carolina many times for rest and rehabilitation, F. Scott for his tuberculosis and alcoholism and Zelda for treatment of schizophrenia. Zelda, who was an accomplished writer, painter, and dancer, remained at Highland Hospital in Asheville when F. Scott relocated to Hollywood, and was released after four years on the occasion of Scott's death. Zelda returned for treatment again and died in a fire at the hospital in 1948.

Abstract:
Reece Swan, longtime resident of Baldhead Island and son of Cape Fear Light Keeper, Capt. Charlie Swan, believes that private development undertaken by responsible developers with ample funds, know-how, and desire to preserve the island's natural beauty offers the best possibility of protecting the island from the double threats of human abuse and natural damage. The island has undergone numerous ownership changes in the last 75 years and is currently owned by the Carolina Cape Fear Corporation, which is pushing ahead with preliminary survey work with lots being offered for sale as early as January 1971.
