      Here is some news from the Special Collections front at the Alabama
      Archives:

      1. Many of the 19th Century maps are being scanned on CD's. Full size
      color maps can now be printed and bought by patrons.

      2. The panorama photograph collection, LPP 57, has been completed. Most
      photographs are of units at Camp Sheridan (Montgomery) and Camp McClellan
      during World War I.

      3. The Gen. Earl Van Dorn papers, LPR 162, have been completed. These span
      from 1848-1904 with the largest concentration of correspondence being from
      1862. There are many original telegrams from notables such as Jefferson
      Davis, Braxton Bragg, John C. Breckenridge and John C. Pemberton.

      4. The Zitella Cocke papers, LPR 161, have been completed. Included in
      this collection are original manuscripts, including many short stories and
      poems, letters, clippings and biographical information on her life. She was
      acknowledged by the state of Alabama for contributions to literature. Many
      of her writings were widely read across the U.S. and Europe.

      Thanks for all you have done and you will be hard to replace. I look
      forward to seeing you at the SALA meeting in Dec.

      To all the usual suspects,

      I would like to get out the fall issue of the Alabama Archivist by
      mid-November. Please send me news from your institutions by the end of
      October.

      This will be my last issue as editor. If anyone out there has an
      interest in taking on the job but is not sure what it involves, I'll be
      happy to fill you in.

      Thanks,

      Elisa Baldwin
