Various artifact collections have recently been placed in the Folklife Center Archives, and resources to properly process and store these artifacts have been obtained. The Folklife Center at Fairmont State University actively seeks donations of any artifacts that will help interpret West Virginia folklife. This may include photographs, family memorabilia, journals, letters, oral histories and folklore, and any other materials of such nature. Individuals who may want to contribute to this growing collection should contact Dr. Judy P. Byers or Mr. Noel W. Tenney at the WV Folklife Center at Fairmont State University.
