Hot off the presses: Bell County Revisited

Hot off the presses: Bell County Revisited

Townsend Memorial Library Director of Learning Resources Denise Karimkhani recently completed an index to a local history book, Bell County Revisited: an Informal Pictorial History of Bell County, written by Martha Bowmer and published by the Temple Jaycees in 1976. She had previously prepared indexes for After Seventy-Five Years (published in 1920 to celebrate Baylor Female College’s Diamond Jubilee), The Parker Years (a biography of former UMHB president Bobby Parker), and a thesis entitled Mary Hardin-Baylor College, 1845- 1937.

“I prepare these indexes as a service to the university and to the local community,” Karimkhani said. “At the library, we receive numerous requests from alumni who want a photograph or information on a relative who attended the college. The indexes have proven very useful as a finding aid.” The indexes are available in the library’s special collections for use by patrons. The Bell County Revisited index is also available to purchase for $10. For more information, contact Karimkhani at 254-295-4636 or dkarimkhani@umhb.edu
