AUM Archival Nuggets

October is National Archives Month, to celebrate we’re focusing on the holdings of the Library’s Archives & Special Collections Department. The Archives & Special Collections dept. was created in 1986 and is home to official university records, rare and unique books, manuscript collections and photos. Stop by and check us out! We’re located on the 8th floor in the Library Tower.
The AUM Archives & Special Collections Department is home to the following collections:

Capri Theatre:
The Capri Community Film Society was organized in 1983 to save Montgomery’s only remaining neighborhood theater as an operating movie house. Constructed in 1941 in an Art Deco style, the Clover Theater served as the neighborhood theater for the Cloverdale area. As a non-profit agency, the Society is unique in that it is the only non-profit film society outside of New York that operates its own theater. http://aumnicat.aum.edu/departments/archives/capri.pd
U.S. Congressman William Dickinson:
2nd District Representative from 1964-1992. In 1964, Dickinson was elected as a Republican to the U.S. House of Representatives for the Second District of Alabama; he served on the Armed Services Committee until he left office in 1992.

Lella Warren:
Her national, and even international, reputation is based primarily on the success of a single book, Foundation Stone, a historical novel about a family that settled in Alabama in the frontier period of the 1820s. Favorably compared with Gone with the Wind, Foundation Stone was a huge popular success.
