Beverly Tetterton was a research librarian in the North Carolina Room at the New Hanover County Public Library for 31 years. She was a pioneer in digital archives, creating the first in North Carolina. She went on to create numerous digital archive collections which include thousands of historic photographs of the Cape Fear Region. In 2004, she won two awards for Port City Architecture: the Solpa Award for best Library digitization project in the Southeast United States, and the David Brinkley Preservation Award.
She has served on the Boards of the Historic Wilmington Foundation, the Bellamy Mansion Museum, Federation of North Carolina Historical Societies, North Carolina Genealogical Society, and the Old New Hanover Genealogical Society. She has chaired the Historic Wilmington Foundation’s House Plaque Committee for 30 years. She served on Wilmington’s Historic Preservation Commission for a decade. She authored the City’s Riverwalk History Plaques and chaired the Wilmington Convention Center’s Arts and Decoration Committee (which was responsible for its gallery of historic photographs).
In 2001, the Raleigh News & Observer named her Tar Heel of the Week. She and her husband Glenn live in a 100 + year old house in Wilmington’s historic district.
Dan Camacho has an MBA from Northwestern, an MFA in Creative Writing from UNC Wilmington, and has worked at Hewlett Packard, amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, amazon.de, and amazon.fr. He has not received nearly as many awards as Beverly, but he does live in an older house (160+ years) with his wife Lori and two children.
