The Appalachian Trail Conservancy recently made the largest ever donation of materials to the Special Collections Research Center of George Mason University’s library system.

More than 850 linear feet of unprocessed materials document the growth of the Appalachian Trail from a small confederation in 1925 to a modern-day, fully staffed nonprofit.

Among the items in the donation is the Appalachian Trail Conference membership card of Emma “Grandma” Gatewood, the first woman to hike the 2,200-mile trail from Maine to Georgia solo.
