In May of 1997, this project was organized by Jeff Murphy, using the established KY
Biographies Project as a model. State coordinators were sought to set up their own state project.
They were offered the system design and tools created for the KY project, but were free to set up their
project in any way they chose. I am Tary Wiley and I am the state coordinator for North Carolina, Tennessee
and West Virginia.
Volunteers are needed to enter, edit, and archive the biographies for each project. If you have biographies you would like to donate for North Carolina, Tennessee or West Virginia, please contact the state coordinator or the appropriate county coordinator.
