Project Spotlight

Corks and Curls Legacy Project

This project will produce a permanent online archive and virtual museum commemorating Corks and Curls, the student annual of the University of Virginia. First published in 1888, Corks and Curls was an established feature of the Virginia experience, documenting numerous aspects of student life, until it ceased publication in 2008— marking an illustrious 119-year run. The Project’s primary deliverable will be an online museum at www.uvacorksandcurls.com, a no-fee website where virtual copies of every edition of Corks and Curls will be archived. These archives will include video accounts from alumni of the time, an essay on the historical context of each issue, and even a keyword search function creating an online searchable database of information.
