      NOTE:

      Materials in brackets are my additions. Items are listed more or less in reverse chronological order within each section. All links are presumably working at the time I send this email. Many of the articles listed are printed in other Alabama newspapers; in general, I do not attempt to list all appearances of an article. Some dates given are those when the item was posted to the newspaper or magazine web site. Some items are listed without links because I either could not find online versions or could not find a free one.

      Feel free to forward this email as desired....

      WARNING: Many articles on newspaper and magazine web sites are accompanied by nasty, anonymous comments about individuals and subjects in the posted articles. Some articles in these listings will unfortunately include such commentary.

      AND NOW THE NEWS...

      Additional articles can often be found at Google, Topix or Yahoo news sites:

      http://news.google.com/

      http://www.topix.net/

      Please note that many articles continue beyond the single web page I have linked here. Web sites related to some articles often appear in the "Bonus Material" section.

      **BONUS MATERIAL
      ==================

      **Southern Presbyterian Archives
      The Special Collections and Archives department of Campbell Library at Columbia Theological Seminary is pleased to announce the launch of a new archives online catalog providing public access to records of archival holdings relating to Southern Presbyterian history. In 2007 the seminary received records of over 800 congregations, 500 individuals and 80 presbyteries which were formerly located at the Presbyterian Historical Society in Montreat, NC. The collections include primarily materials from the Southern Stream of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and its predecessor bodies. The Southern Stream is identified as Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia, and Virginia. An introductory page containing explanations of what is included in the archives catalog is available at this address http://www.ctsnet.edu/Library/ArchivesOnlineCatalog.aspx and provides a direct link to the search page. At present the archives online catalog contains records for about half of the materials transferred from Montreat and additional records are being added regularly. Legacy finding aids are attached to the catalog records when available. Books and periodicals are not included, but can be searched through the library’s online catalog at http://web2.ctsnet.edu
      For additional information please contact archivist Chris Paton at (404)687-4638 or archives@...
