Lindley Butler, PH.D. will give a talk on "Proprietary North Carolina: What’s Old and What’s New?" at the museum on Saturday, May 12, 2018, 1 p.m.
LINDLEY S. BUTLER, PH. D., North Carolina history consultant will speak on his current work on the history of Proprietary North Carolina at the Museum of the Albemarle on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at 1 p.m. in the Gaither Auditorium. In 1668, four precincts were formed out of the County of Albemarle, the first governmental unit of what would become North Carolina. These four prescients (now counties)—Currituck, Pasquotank, Perquimans and Chowan—were later subdivided further giving rise to what we now think of as northeastern North Carolina, the Albemarle Region. His lecture is part of the 350th Celebration of the Albemarle.
Among Dr. Butler’s significant contributions to the history of the state are numerous publications, television commentaries and consultations, and service to several historical organizations. He is author or editor of twelve books, including Pirates, Privateers, and Rebel Raiders of the Carolina Coast and a widely-used college supplement, The North Carolina Experience; as well as scores of monographs, articles, and reviews. He is currently engaged in writing a comprehensive history of Proprietary North Carolina, 1629 – 1729.
