Glenn Galbraith will discuss the works of his great-great grandfather, Albert Roland Stone, Rochester’s first newspaper staff photographer. He will also relay Albert’s message to his granddaughter, Helen, to save the images and discuss the inspiration behind ROC Archive’s mission statement to preserve image media. ROC Archive is a regional archive dedicated to the collection, preservation and accessibility of the region's audiovisual media as an artistic and historical record of our culture and heritage. The region includes New York State, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The archive focuses on newsreels, home movies, audio recordings, video recordings and all other audiovisual tools and media, digital and analog, created to capture a region’s culture.
Glenn Galbraith holds a Certificate in Film and Media Preservation from the L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation at the George Eastman Museum and a B.S. in Photography/Gallery Management from The College at Brockport, State University of New York.
This event is co-sponsored by the Perinton Historical Society and Fairport Public Library.
