The preliminary contributors include students from Trent Margrif's First Year Seminar courses in Spring 2019. Margrif’s students conducted initial research into the buildings on Appalachian State's campus and who they were named after. A selection of information was then passed onto Kristen Baldwin Deathridge's Spring 2019 Digital History class. These upper-level students fact-checked the initial research and completed further research as needed. Then, they published the completed findings in this exhibit.
