Treasures of the Museum’s Photo Negative Collection

June 2, 2018 @ 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Treasures of the Museum’s Photo Negative Collection

Presented by Jay Moore, Ph.D, Museum Librarian and Archivist

Lecture begins at 2:30 PM

Maritime Connections lectures are free with Museum admission, but reserving a seat is suggested as seating is limited. Reserve seats below.

In 2015, archivist, Jay Moore, and retired Curator of Photography, Tom Moore, secured funding for a three-year project to catalog several “hidden collections” of photo negatives in the Museum’s cold storage vault. Today, that project is wrapping up, and the public will see for the first time what was found! From riverside towns in the Austrian Alps, to U.S. battleships of the dreadnought era, the hidden collections offer something unique and interesting for everyone to enjoy!
