Our Webmaster

The Director’s Office

Office of The Registrar

Whether you’re a collector with fragile 150-year old images or the caretaker of a family album, we can help you get started on the job of preserving and protecting your treasured photographs.

Our Webmaster has tips to help you get the most out of this website, plus other technical stuff.

Also: true stories about a computer warranty that really worked and an Internet Service Provider with a heart of gold!

The door is always open at the Director’s office. He’ll be happy to tell you about the Museum and its affiliated Collection of five thousand classic photographs.

The Registrar helps researchers and curators search the collection, and arranges Rights and Permissions for broadcast & print.

Collectors: Occasionally we locate images that may be of interest to other collections. Please click here if you wish to have your interests on file in our database.
