Additional Information

A recent addition to our Appalachian Studies Teaching Collection is a 1979 Dolly Parton Pinball Machine made by Bally. While it may seem like fun and games, this artifact is really an interesting study in Appalachian identity and stereotype, with a very interesting back story. During the summer Dolly will get a few repairs and a tune up, but look for Dolly and the story to debut in the LJAC Gallery at the beginning fall semester.

    I have one of these in my collection as well. I’m sure it will be appreciated.
