The Charlie Rose Collection
covers the congressional service of Congressman Charles G. Rose, III. The collection is of sufficient scope and depth to be of interest and use to a variety of patrons doing research. In several topical areas, there are materials available from different portions of the collection such as legislative files, photos, books, and memorabilia including information on the opening of the Charlie Rose Agri-Expo Center in Fayetteville. Representative Rose was very supportive of the Lumbee Indians of Robeson County as was demonstrated by the many relevant documents in his files. There are approximately 21 linear feet of paper files and 74 linear feet of memorabilia.
