Ladies Auxiliary Scrapbooks… Digitized!

The Raleigh Fire Museum has partnered with DigitalNC to present scrapbooks as created by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Raleigh Fire Fighters Association.

The books were photographed and indexed last month at Wilson Library at UNC. They’re now available for digital viewing.

The auxiliary was formed in 1952, by wives of Raleigh firefighters. They created scrapbooks from 1951 to 1972, recording their group’s activities as well as news and events about the fire department.
