This masthead for the Spirit of the Valley comes from a small selection of digitized newspapers in the Rockingham Union Lodge Collection. The newspaper was in the contents of a time capsule interred in 1906 and opened in 2006.
About The Collection

Materials in our Rare Book Collection fall into three general categories:

Local History

Defined geographically as the Central Shenandoah Valley counties of Page, Shenandoah, Rockingham, and Augusta.  Printed materials published locally or that document the history of the area are collected. 

JMU Historical Collection

Many of the JMU publications are, of course, books and periodicals.  JMU periodicals include: the Bulletin, Breeze, Bluestone, Curio, Madison, and Student Handbook.  Honors theses, masters theses and doctoral dissertations through 2009 are also held by Special Collections.

Curriculum Support Resources

Materials that do not fall within the categories of Local History or JMU History, but that support established curricula at the University, may also be acquired and housed in Special Collections based on the criteria noted above in the Scope of Collections.
