William Halsey & Corrie McCallum Paintings
William Halsey & Corrie McCallum Paintings William M. Halsey, an American artist (1915-1999), established the studio art program at the College of Charleston in 1964. He served as assistant professor and artist-in-residence at the College for nearly twenty years; upon his retirement the faculty voted unanimously to name the art gallery at the College in his honor. Corrie McCallum, Halsey's wife, was also an American artist (1914-2009) who served as the first Curator of Education at the Gibbes Art Gallery in the 1960s and established the Printmaking Department at the College of Charleston in the 1970s. Both artists’ works are represented in the permanent collections of museums throughout the United States, along with numerous exhibitions and publications. These twelve paintings are part of the Addlestone Library's collection.

Some images are architectural, including one of the Miles Brewton House (Pringle House), Charleston, S.C.

Middleton Family Art Work, 1803-1867
Middleton Family Art Work, 1803-1867 A ten-set collection containing 37 items of measured drawings, ink sketches, pencil drawings and watercolors representing several generations of the Middleton family of South Carolina from 1803-1867.

Five country houses and one greenhouse are depicted in these 25 drawings. All buildings are in the Adamesque style and none of the designs is known to have been executed. Sets 1-3 are initialed "J.I.M" and are dated 1811 and 1813.

Sets 5-6 are in pencil on paper by different manufacturers, though some are also watermarked 1809. All 6 sets appear to be by the same architect and to have notations in the same handwriting. Set 7 contains an elevation for flanking wings by "Thos. Walker Feby. 4th 1809." Set 8 consists of 4 pencil sketches of a design to enlarge Middleton Place. Set 9 contains miscellaneous drawings.
