Steve in the DLG

2010 October 14

The Digital Library of Georgia is amazingly accessible given the size of it. The information is skillfully organized and cared for; you can get what you want and need. But what if you want something you don’t need? What if you don’t know what you want? What if you just typed “S..T..E..V..E” into the search box for the kick of it?

Well…138 results from twelve collections is what you would find. Here’s a sampler:

    1. Peanut damage: “Peanut pods decay as a result of holes bored by wireworms, also known as click beetles, which feed on the underground portions of many Georgia crops.” A photograph by Steve Brown. (New Georgia Encyclopedia)

    2. The Silver Eclipse Band members at the Pulaski County Courthouse. Steve Richardson is fourth from the left on the front row. (Vanishing Georgia)

    3. A fire tower with bell for alarms in Augusta, Georgia. Known as “Big Steve,” it was dismantled in 1894. (Vanishing Georgia)

    4. Poster for “The Crimson Cowboy.” The text reads: “Co-starring ANITA BUSH. Little Mother of Colored Drama and the Versatile LAWRENCE CHENAULT. Supported by BILL PICKETT, Worlds Champion Wild West Performer, the one-legged marvel, STEVE REYNOLDS “and 30 Colored Cowboys .” (The Blues, Black Vaudeville, and the Silver Screen, 1912-1930s)

    5. Sergeant Steve Hall, fallen in combat during WWII. (Gordon County, GA Obituaries collection)
