FIRST SUNDAY LECTURE
"New Photographic Acquisitions: The SACC History Committee Historical Images Project"


Sunday, March 5, 2017
3:00-4:00 p.m.
Smyrna Library Meeting Room
Free Admission

Speaker:  Dr. William Marchione, historian and Charles Stannard, photographer
 
The History Committee of the Smyrna Arts & Cultural Council (SACC), has been at work for several months now assembled a huge collection of previously untapped  historical images, mostly drawn from the pages of the old Smyrna Herald and Smyrna Neighbor, weekly newspapers published between 1962 and 1994, and from other sources as well. These photos are being deposited in a topically organized historical file that already contains about 1500 images. The more than 100 new images in the upcoming show will be organized around 16 themes in local history.  This, it is hoped, will be the first of a series of such programs. The program will be narrated by local historian Bill Marchione and photographer Charlie Stannard. The History Committee encourages audience input.

The First Sunday Lecture series is sponsored by the Friends of Smyrna Library and Smyrna Library.
