Knoxville History Project Annual Luncheon
The Knoxville History Project will hold its annual luncheon and fundraiser. The event is by invitation-only, and walkups can’t be accommodated. The luncheon will celebrate the work of the Knoxville History Project and honor Steve Cotham for his contributions to what we know about Knoxville’s history. For more 35 years, Cotham served as manager of the Calvin M. McClung Historical Collection at the Knox County Public Library and transformed the region’s most valuable research library, greatly expanding the collection’s offerings, introducing a digital catalogue and a tech-trained staff, enhancing its art collection and incorporating the Tennessee Archive of Moving Image and Sound. He published a photographic book, The Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 2006. There is no fee to attend. A table host will encourage a donation in the amount of your choosing.
