Robert Stakeley – On Preservation of Photographs
March 11, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDTFREE - Open to the Public
Join us March 11. Be part of this hands-on workshop.
Robert Stakeley is the Coordinator of the Archivist and Educational Programs at the Heinz History Center. For our program, he welcomes people to bring in photos and slides that they want to know how to preserve. He says there is no real limit and envisions the program being an engaging, facilitated discussion, hands-on workshop.
“We’ll get to peoples’ photos as time permits. So, if someone has a scrapbook with photos in it – bring it in. Magnetic album with 100+ photos in it – bring it in. Slide carousel…”
