The more than 7,500 historic images from The Daily Reflector, Greenville, NC's daily newspaper, document the sweeping changes in Eastern North Carolina between 1949 and 1967. This period of dramatic social and economic change saw the increasing power of federal and state governments, improvements in industry and agriculture, and social upheavals related to race relations — not just in Eastern North Carolina, but across the country.
