INDEX TO H. G. JONES'S ASSOCIATED PRESS COLUMNS. 1969-1986 

"In the Light of History," 29 October 1969-21 March 1979 

(C905/I35) 

"In Light of History," 28 March 1979-15 October 1986 

(C905/I35.1) 



The weekly column, "In the Light of History" (the title was changed 
slightly in 1979 to drop "the"), originated in March 1963 when Tim Parker of the 
Associated Press requested Dr. Christopher Crittenden, then director of the 
State Department of Archives and History, to furnish a weekly article on North 
Carolina history for distribution to afternoon newspapers subscribing to the 
wire service. 

Upon Dr. Crittenden's death in October 1969, the AP requested his 
successor. Dr. H. G. Jones, to continue the column. During the following 17 
years Dr. Jones never missed a Wednesday deadline. At an average of six hours 
of research and writing for each story, the 884 columns from 1969 to 1986 
consumed an estimated 5,304 hours — the equivalent of 663 eight-hour work days 
or 132 forty-hour weeks. At 600 words each, the stories contain over 530,000 
words totaling, in print, about 17,680 column inches — the equivalent of 134 
newspaper pages without advertisements. 

"In the Light of History" (and "In Light of History") was researched, 
written, typed on a bulletin typewriter, and furnished to the Associated Press 
free and without even reimbursement for postage. The sole compensation consisted 
of the satisfaction of providing a public service to North Carolinians interested 
in their history. 

Many but not all of the stories appear in the North Carolina Collection 
Clipping File under the appropriate subject. This index, however, is to the 
complete xerox copies of the original typed stories, bound in 16 volumes in the 
North Carolina Collection under classification of G 90-5/- 1 3-5 for those dating from 
29 October 1969 through 21 March 1979 and G90-5/I35.1 for those dating from 28 
March 1979 through 15 October 1986. When a patron furnishes the call number and 
date, the reference staff will bring the appropriate volume. The date of release 
is used for indexing purposes.
