Earl Weir, a longtime St. Petersburg resident who now lives outside of the area, originally donated materials related to his family’s history and the Tampa Bay region in 2012. Many items from the original accession were digitized versions of home movies, and they were received in multiple installments. Some artifacts were also included in the original accession, such as an electric clock from Webb’s City, a longtime department store located in St. Petersburg. Mr. Weir donated a second accession of items in early 2014 while visiting the Poynter Library. This finding aid enumerates materials from this second accession only, comprised largely of ephemera and matchbooks. A list of materials from the original 2012 donations is maintained by Special Collections and University Archives and is available for inspection upon request.
