Regarding The Tabor City Tribune. “The W. Horace Carter Newspaper Museum, located at the Tabor-Loris Tribune offices, exhibits the life and works of 1953 Pulitzer Prize for Meritorious Public Service winner W. Horace Carter. The museum, which is open to the public during office hours, most prominently features his editorials against the resurrection of the Ku Klux Klan in eastern North Carolina and the reactions generated during that campaign. Other items include publishing equipment, University of North Carolina memorabilia, and many of Mr. Carterís books on fishing and the outdoors.” —North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources.
