William Aubrey "Bill" Harris (1937-2017), was born in 1937 in Kitty Hawk Village, North Carolina. He was the son of Aubrey Alonzo Harris (1913-1975) and Edna Baum Harris (1911-1996), and the grandson of Elijah Baum (1885-1965). After graduating from Guilford College in 1958 with a degree in history, he dedicated himself to documenting Outer Banks history and recording oral histories. He worked for the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina as a historian before serving the National Park Service for over 38 years. As superintendent of Cape Hatteras National Seashore from 1975 to 1981, he implemented various environmental protections along the coast of the Outer Banks.

As a local historian and genealogical researcher, he was an active member of numerous organizations such as the First Flight Society, The Albemarle Genealogical Society, and the Austin Cemetery Association. Additionally, he was a board member for the Outer Banks Community Foundation and Outer Banks History Center Advisory Committee, and he served as the mayor of Kitty Hawk from 2001 to 2005. He continued researching local history and recording oral histories until his death in March 2017.

The materials in this series primarily relate to Bill Harris's oral history project, completed over the course of several decades (1960s-2000s). This series includes recordings of oral history interviews conducted by Harris with local residents of Kitty Hawk and the Outer Banks, as well as Harris's notes on the interviews and an index created by Harris indicating major topics covered by the project. Also included are three 3.5" floppy disks containing National Park Service photographs (1999), a DVD entitled "Hyde County and the Baum 45th Reunion" (2012), and a VHS tape entitled "Cape Lookout: A Diamond in the Rough with Gary Dean."

The Photographs series, circa 1870s-2003, contains photographic prints, slides, film negatives, tintypes, cabinet cards, and cartes de visite collected by Bill from various local families. Many of the photographs are originals, but some are reproductions printed on photo paper or copy paper. Photographs primarily consist of candid and posed portraits of various family members and groups, as well as images of automobiles, houses, and a few local events. Most of the people in the portraits are identified, but many individuals in candid shots are unidentified. The photographs primarily relate to the Baum, Harris, Sawyer, Tillett, and Wescott families.
