Other Cool Stuff

The Atlanta Pop Festival - Although not nearly well known as the festivals in Woodstock, Monterey and Altamont, Atlanta had it's own festival in July of 1970 that featured the greatest bands of the time: The Allman Brothers, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and others. This is an excellent website about the festival.

Music Notation and Terminology, by Karl W. Gehrkens - A 1914 textbook about proper music notation available on the Gutenberg website.

Leroy "Pop" Miller - Pop Miller was the principal of my high school, East Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte, NC. Pop had high expectations for himself, his school and especially the students. He was quick to let you know when you were screwing up and every now and then he'd give you some encouragement and praise. This is an interview he did for the Documenting the American South program which is an oral history program sponsored by the Library of the University of North Carolina .

Papers of the Willingham and Lawton families - Some of my ancestors: This collection of four hundred ninety-eight manuscripts documents family life in the area of Allendale and Greenville during and after the Civil War, in particular through the interrelated families of Sarah Lawton, eldest child of Dr. Benjamin W.

Willingham was a student at Furman University in Greenville at the outbreak of the Civil War. Without returning home, he enlisted in the First Regiment of South Carolina Cavalry commanded by Gen. M.C. Butler. During the war, Willingham served in Virginia and South Carolina.
