Library seeks more historical Fayetteville photos

The Fayetteville Public Library is seeking historical photographs to be included in the bonus features of Up Among the Hills: The Story of Fayetteville, a documentary film by Emmy Award-winning director and UA professor Larry Foley.

Foley and his team have spent the past two years researching and filming the documentary which is narrated by former President Bill Clinton.

Photos will be accepted at the library through Monday, Aug. 20.

The following photos are needed: photos of the Buddy Hayes band, photos or film of the synchronized swimming group at Wilson Pool (1950s or early ’60s), and photos of the Fayetteville Pigeon Club (late 1930s).

Items will be scanned on site and returned to their owners. The images will become part of the library’s digital collection of Fayetteville images, which will be available for library patrons.
