Volunteer Voices By the Numbers

Students of Vinson School, Stewart County, Tennessee, 1942 (Stewart County Public Library)
More than 40 contributing institutions, large and small, are represented in the database thus far. Stewart County Public Library's collection of photos of students at rural schools in the 1930s and 1940s provides an example of one of the most important goals of Volunteer Voices: highlighting the rich primary source materials from small institutions.

In addition, there are 2191 records representing 5470 images in the database so far. Later this year, these numbers will be:
  • Contributing institutions: 97
  • Records in database: 5,000
  • Images in database: 10,000
