Biographical Files: Home

The history of Central Piedmont Community College faculty, staff, and administrative figures.

Introduction

Between 1969 and 1980, Central Piedmont historian Raymond Mason compiled a large series of scrapbooks, photographs, publications, ephemera, and oral history interviews which document the dynamic story of Central Piedmont Community College.

Mr. Mason believed that collecting such a rich account of our history was important for future generations; providing access to these materials was imperative to both student and college success. These materials were not tucked away in a closet; rather, they were put on display in the History Room of the Hagemeyer Learning Resource Center (the former library of Central Piedmont), available for use by all who wish to learn. 

Sadly, in 1980, Raymond Mason suddenly passed away, leaving the fate of the History Room, and its contents, in question. However, in 1984, a woman named Dot Glover donated money to the Central Piedmont Foundation so that these materials could be reviewed by an archivist and preserved for posterity. Historical records continued to be compiled after his passing.

As the archives department was formulated, these materials were incorporated into the History Room collection housed in Central Piedmont Archives.

This particular exhibit will focus on our collection of biographical files found within the History Room Collection, both compiled by Raymond Mason and his counterparts after his death.
