Re: CSRM Philip R. Hastings photo ID question

There is nothing to substitute contacting the museums's librarians
directly at
<mailto:rrmuseumlibrary%40parks.ca.org>rrmuseumlibrary@parks.ca.org.
They are truly there to serve you, and as they can make easier your
quest for information they will do so. Although Ellen is still in
charge, she also has taken on the new title of Director of
Collections for the entire museum with all the wider responsibilities
implied. The new librarian Cara, is extremely good, will do her
professional best, and will summon help from Ellen or Kyle Wyatt when
needed.

A lot of the Hastings negatives are without any localizing
identifications, and in this regard a lot of motivated visitors find
it very useful to look through them by hand over a light box (not an
unpleasant chore). A number of such visitors have been extremely
helpful in being able to identify locations and provide supporting
annotation. Jim Singer from Chicago did this on some Soo/DSSA photos
about a month ago, and did the same on some IC photos several years
ago.
