Shot by Palmer Blair, a Boone photographer who was active between 1946 and his death in a plane crash in 1957, these few images of the Kefauvers at Mayview Manor are just a small glimpse into the forthcoming Palmer Blair Collection. Consisting of thousands of negatives, the collection will be uploaded to Digital Watauga in stages, as portions of the collection are catalogued, scanned, and appropriately described. Any given photographs in the collection serve as a starting point for research into Watauga County’s fascinating and often influential history, and they provide a comprehensive picture of how Watauga County has flourished and grown. Stay tuned for future announcements about the new and exciting Palmer Blair Collection, coming soon.
