2009 Pictures

January - Jim Dabner of ProVideo in Madison, Wisconsin delivered a Sony BVH3100 1" video player that they retired and donated to the Archives. While the Archives has a number of 1" videos, this player is the first we have had to view and copy those tapes.

March - Bob inspecting one of the 152 large scrapbooks of newspaper clippings and magazine clippings about Billy Graham and the BGEA. These scrapbooks were received by the Archives in 2008 and covered the years 1983-2005. They were sent to Pennsylvania in 2009 to be microfilmed. The scrapbooks were added to Collection 360.
April - Calligrapher Timothy Botts stood next to the wooden panel he created as a commission by the Archives in 2006. The panel features a verse from the Apostle Peter's second letter that captures the Archives' mission to preserve an ongoing legacy through documents for the instruction, encouragement and inspiration of the Church for future generations.
