Elizabeth Larew: Preserving Berenice Abbott’s glass plate negatives
Ms Larew was one of the recipients of the PHSC Thesis award at Ryerson last fall. Currently she is a collections cataloger at Princeton University. She will speak at our March 2016 meeting about Berenice Abbott and Ms Abbott’s glass plate negatives.
Her research was performed at Ryerson while earning her MA FPPCM. Berenice Abbot’s archives are the fourth artist archives acquired by Ryerson’s Peter Higdon Research Centre. Ms Abbott (1898 – 1991) was a well known American photographer. This talk is based on Ms Larew’s thesis which was a source for the article in the recent Photographic Canadiana (41-4 pp 6-15).
The public is welcome. Go to our Programs page for times and directions.
