Thanks to fundraising efforts of Photo Friends and a generous grant from the Haynes Foundation, there the Valley Times digitization projects commenced in April 2013. Valley Times archivist Christine Adolph has been hard at work organizing the collection and prepping photos for the scanning lab.
Christine recently earned a Masters of Library and Information from San Jose State University, here and completed an archival internship with the LAPL Photo Collection during the summer of 2012. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from California Institute of the Arts School of Film/Video in 1997 and has worked with image collections for local artist collectives, and the preservation of historic collections for the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles Research Library and the Antelope Valley Indian Museum State Historic Park in Lancaster. As a Los Angeles native, who has lived in Sherman Oaks and North Hollywood, and currently lives in Glendale, Christine has a strong interest in the San Fernando Valley community and culture.
Thank you Christine, and keep up the good work!
