Historical tapes of Carbine Williams preserved in digital format
Placeholder Image
Camden is blessed with not only having exceptionally skilled people in its community, but also people interested in and willing to give generously of their time and skills. Over the past weeks, Don Smith, a long-time friend of BG Ross Beard of the S. C. Military Museum, has taken some 100 very old, reel to reel tapes dating from the 1950’s, on which Beard interviewed North Carolina weapons genius, David M. “Carbine” Williams, and carefully and skillfully transferred them to digital discs. These remarkable but fragile tapes were stored for more than 50 years.
