MOORESVILLE — “Carl White’s Life in the Carolinas” received seven awards at the 74th Annual N.C. Society of Historians Awards Banquet held Oct. 17 at the Hilton Garden Inn.

White’s Emmy-nominated television show documents the people, places and events that shape the culture, vibrant life and diversity of today’s Carolinas.

Winning entries submitted for the NCSH annual awards dealt with a wide and diverse variety of topics. The following show segments and specials were awarded during the banquet in the Paul Green Multimedia Awards Category: “The Collectors,” “The Brown Mountain Lights,” “Cleveland County-Epic History,” “The American Legion World Series,” “Hatteras Island,” “Hatteras Lighthouse” and “Washburn General Store.”

“The Collectors” piece introduced viewers of the show to Salisbury’s Tom Isenhour and Clyde, both avid collectors of history including Civil War artifacts, music and nostalgic television memorabilia.

The judge’s collective comments cited “Carl White’s Life in the Carolinas” as “the most amazing series and one of the best programs regarding North Carolina on television today.”

The N.C. Society of Historians was formed in 1941 for the purpose of collecting and preserving North Carolina history, traditions, artifacts, genealogies and folklore. Its goal is to help preserve, publish and reward those who have worked tirelessly to bring the state’s past, present and future to the forefront.
