Now Available: Former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory's Papers

Over 40 linear feet of former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory’s official documents, photos and personal papers are now available to the public.

This acquisition is timely as two significant events unfold for Charlotte: The former Mayor’s recent North Carolina gubernatorial campaign announcement and Charlotte’s selection as the 2012 Democratic National Convention host city.

Special Collections has been the city of Charlotte’s formal repository of mayoral papers since the 1960’s, beginning with former Mayor Stan Brookshire.

Visitors can peruse information Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Atkins Library’s Special Collections, located on the 10th floor (along with its amazing view of Charlotte).  Appointments are also welcome. For questions or to make an appointment, contact Special Collections at or call 704-687-2449.
