Those glass plate negatives again. There are several collections of c1900-1920 glass plate negatives in the area. I have some, Knapp Museum, and Sweden museum. All were scanned around 2010 through grants Mary Jo Gigliotti obtained. I have the master tiff files of the scans. Greg Lawrence, retired photographer who has been doing invaluable work with different local history people on photo restorations and so on wants to download the tiffs I have so he can sort, do restorations etc. He'll be coming by next week, there's about 50gb worth, 200+ images.
A student who performed in this play when it was done here emailed asking what I might have in archives. It wasn't in the Jim Dusen photo list, but that isn't conclusive, so I spent an hour searching thru Spring 1980 negatives, but no luck. Replied and attached the article I found in the 1980 Stylus.

Student from a CMC class researching Fannie B. She came to archives, we talked about Fannie's life, historical sources etc. It also came up that the student is a history major, and might be interested in an internship this coming fall, researching the little black community of 19th century Brockport.

Our second Antiques Roadshow was this past Saturday. Many thanks to Bob Meringola and his merry crew of expert appraisers for their work! Although we didn't have quite the crowds we did the first time, we had a good number of attenders, and the event generated about $800 for the Friends group to continue its good work.
