The Digital Preservation and Access Unit of MSU Libraries is pleased to announce the addition of the following items to our digital collections:
These publications date from 1926-1999 and include circulars, technical and information bulletins, and MR reports published by MSU AgEcon departments.
These statuettes are comprised of painted plaster or bronze, depicting Lincoln in various stages of his life, as well as other Civil War era scenes.
These are photographs taken and collected by Charles Johnson Faulk, Jr. (1915-1990), Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and executive editor of the Vicksburg Evening Post (Vicksburg, Mississippi). The photographs document numerous significant events and aspects of civic life in and around Vicksburg, including parades, Pilgrimage, fairs, pageants, community theater, businesses and prominent citizens.
These contain hundreds of original political tracts, speeches, pamphlets, broadsides, and other printed works from the 1830s to the 1920s. Included are original printings of Abraham Lincoln speeches made in the Illinois House of Representatives, copies of the Lincoln/Douglas debates, General Orders issued during the Civil War, and Republican Party tract's organizing African American voters during Reconstruction.

The complex collection contains documents and artifacts on a wide variety of subjects including Early America and European manuscripts, early American newspapers, plantation culture in MS and LA, and records of enslaved persons.
From a recent donation by Chip Templeton. This collection now consists of almost 13,000 pieces of beautifully illustrated sheet music, many of which are in the public domain.
Part of the Congressional and Political Research Center, this new addition contains weekly Radio Addresses from the 1950-1970s, covering a wide range of political topics during Senator Stennis' tenure.
