A Potter’s Progress: Emanuel Suter and the Business of Craft, Scott H. Suter
Scanning project of Old Salem institutional ephemera has made the Three Forks of Muddy Creek, Johann Leinbach Journal and Erika Huber’s translation of the Aufseher Collegium available online. Another resource that was originally prepared in 1994 reviewed many of the diaries and records of the Moravians and created a compilation of mentions of African Americans in Wachovia/Salem.
Old Salem’s Anne P. and Thomas A. Gray Library houses materials on Moravian history, southern decorative arts and material culture, and social history of the antebellum South. The Library contains over 20,000 cataloged volumes, including books, periodicals, rare books and manuscripts, and microforms.
