The James O. Rigney papers (Special Collections Department of the College of Charleston)

Rigney’s Apple /// computer

Posted on 27 March 2013 | 10:33 am — 

While consisting primarily of typescripts the collection also includes Rigney’s 1980s Apple /// computer. As you can see from the images below it does work. What you can’t see is that some of the keyboard keys don’t function as they should, in particular the number 8 key which lists what files are on the hard drive. Luckily for us there is a local Mac repair shop nearby and I’m hoping when I speak to him he’ll have some advice on how to repair it. If that’s not possible maybe he’ll at least have some advice on how to get the data off the hard drive and onto something more stable and accessible for our archive patrons.

A Memory of Light book signing

Posted on 15 January 2013 | 2:50 pm — 

This past weekend the Addlestone Library at The College of Charleston had the pleasure of hosting over 300 WoT fans for a Q&A and book signing for A Memory of Light, the final book of The Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan. We were fortunate to have Harriet McDougal, Brandon Sanderson, Maria Simons, and Alan Romanczuk present for this special event in James Oliver Rigney Jr.’s hometown of Charleston, South Carolina.

In addition to the Q&A and book signing, Ta’veren Tees were on site selling t-shirts, playing cards, and posters, Barnes and Noble set up a small table and sold hardcover copies of A Memory of LightThe Gathering Storm, and Towers of Midnight, and in the rotunda on the first floor, Special Collections had a small display case of materials from the recently donated James O. Rigney Jr. papers as part of a larger display on the third floor. Also on display were reproductions of Rand’s red coat, an Asha’man coat with a Wheel of Time sword pin, and an Aiel warrior complete with spear and shield provided by Museum Replicas. Hunter Wentworth was on hand showing portions of  The Wit of the Staircase, his documentary on the life of Robert Jordan, as well as filming the event for inclusion in the final cut of his movie. The Memory Keepers were also present handing out numbered tickets for people wanting books signed, answering questions, and getting to spend a little personal time with Harriet and Brandon, Maria, and Alan before the signing.
