CHARM (Consortium for the History of Agricultural and Rural Mississippi) seeks to promote understanding and appreciation of the role played by agriculture, forestry, and rural life in Mississippi's past by collecting, preserving, and providing access to important historical materials as a foundation for teaching, learning, and research.
Materials in the Digital Collection
Selected materials from the collections in CHARM continue to be added to the digital collection. These include photographs, reports, and records from the MSU Extension Service, personal diaries and correspondence, business ledgers, daybooks, deeds, correspondence and other records relating to agriculture and timber industries, exhibition catalogs from fairs, and records of the cotton trade.
The Cully Cobb Forest Resources Tool Collection, featuring photographs of antique tools, is also part of the CHARM initiative.
