Repository description (extant): The East Tennessee History Center is one of the two facilities of the Knox County Public Library System in downtown Knoxville, two blocks from the main library (Lawson McGhee). It houses the Knox County Archives and the Calvin M. McClung Historical Collection, as well as the East Tennessee Historical Society and Museum of East Tennessee History.

Each year over 30,000 people from over 45 states visit the Center to do research in the library or archives, to see the Museum, or to attend programs.

The Calvin M. McClung Historical Collection is the local history and genealogy department of the Knox County Public Library System. The McClung Collection is a reference and research collection. None of the books or library materials circulates, and none are available for interlibrary loan.

Repository Notes (CRHP): The nearby Beck Center, a local African American history organization, also apparently has oral histories related to the civil rights movement.

Repository type: Public Library

Collections:

Sarah Moore Green oral history
Robert J. Booker oral history
Avon Rollins oral history
WBIR (Knoxville) television archive
