Things New and Strange chronicles a research quest undertaken by G. Wayne Clough, the first secretary of the Smithsonian Institution born in the South. Soon after retiring from the Smithsonian, Clough decided to see what the Smithsonian collections could tell him about South Georgia, where he had spent most of his childhood in the 1940s and 1950s. The investigations that followed, which began as something of a quixotic scavenger hunt, expanded as Clough discovered that the collections had many more objects and documents from South Georgia than he had imagined. These objects illustrate important aspects of southern culture and history and also inspire reflections about how South Georgia has changed over time. Clough's discoveries-animal, plant, fossil, and rock specimens, along with cultural artifacts and works of art-not only serve as a springboard for reflections about the region and its history, they also bring Clough's own memories of his boyhood in Douglas, Georgia, back to life. Clough interweaves memories of his own experiences, such as hair-raising escapes from poisonous snakes and selling boiled peanuts for a nickel a bag at the annual auction of the tobacco crop, with anecdotes from family lore, which launches an exploration of his forebears and their place in South Georgia history. In following his engaging and personal narrative, we learn how nonspecialists can use museum archives and how family, community, and natural history are intertwined.

Spartan Wheel Chariots is owned by a paraplegic outdoor fanatic who started by building rugged off-road wheelchairs on the tailgate of his pickup truck. Even the best conventional wheelchairs are not designed for outdoor use. Founder Ben Huntzinger was determined to fix that. Ben researched the least expensive products that still maintain strong integrity for all day rugged terrain. That way, everyone could afford an off-road ride. He partnered with Spinergy Wheels, the Cadillac of wheels to identify a strong and reliable wheel with the best price per wheel. We believe everybody worldwide needs access to living. Backwoods Wheelchairs is the answer. In 2019, Ben participated in the Georgia Chamber of Commerce's InVenture Prize Competition. He placed second, and found an incredible community of support for his rugged wheelchairs. Since then, our mission has been to partner with extraordinary people in providing an extraordinary product. We're changing lives, one wheelchair at a time.
