Library Collections and Comments

Appalachian State University Library
Appalachian State University Library has established a stock car racing collection which is one of the first of its kind in the United States. This new collection consists of books, videos, back runs of periodicals, and other materials related to stock car racing. Suzanne Wise, a reference librarian, is actively seeking materials related to stock car racing. The setting for this collection at ASU is most appropriate because many of the "good-ol' boys" who ran "White Lightening" (illegal bootleg liquor) grew up in that area. Readers who possess an interest in this area and have materials they wish to donate should contact Suzanne Wise: Belk Library, Appalachian State University, PO Box 30326, Boone, NC 28608-2026, Tel: 828-262-2798, Fax 828-262-3001 or Email:
