Abstract:
Born in San Remo, Italy, in 1892, Dorothy Doughty grew up to paint porcelain birds. Each bird is a precise replica of a living species and is presented with flowers or plants representative of its natural habitat. One of only twenty-two complete collections of these birds is housed at Reynolda House in Winston-Salem. This seventy-five-piece collection was dedicated on April 10, 1970, by the Doughty Collection of American Birds. It is the only complete Doughty collection open for public viewing.

Abstract:
At age ten, Reverend Charles Keyes of Hickory discovered the true meaning of Christmas. Several of his friends had received nothing for Christmas, and Charles bought them candy and chewing gum. He began delivering mini-sermons at the age of four, becoming known as The Parson in later years. These days, he plays Santa Claus to the mountain people of five states, delivering tractor-trailer loads of clothes, food, and toys in the early part of December each year. The Parson also opened Camp Joy in Hickory, a summer camp where underprivileged children come for a week and are taken on a shopping spree at the week's end.

Abstract:
University of Tennessee English professor Richard Kelly recently published THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW. This book outlines why the show has been universally popular. Even in urban areas, ratings for the North Carolina-inspired show are high. Part of the appeal is Mayberry's Edenic quality and its resistance to change, giving the viewer a sense of timeless perfection. The relationship between Barney and Andy and how they complement each other also helps make the show a success.
