Lecture: Dating & Preserving Historic Photos

The General Lew Wallace Study & Museum’s Dr. Howard Miller Lecture Series resumes with “Dating and Preserving Historic Photographs” on Thursday, July 11 at 7 p.m. Participants can learn to interpret, date, and protect family photographs during “Dating and Preserving Family Photographs,” presented by Joan Hostetler.

Hostetler will discuss the history of photographic formats and share how to use internal evidence, such as clothing, to date photographs.  Participants are encouraged to bring interesting or mystery photographs for a show-and-tell session after the program.

Hostetler is a graduate of the Photographic Preservation and Archives Management Program at the George Eastman House, International Museum of Photography and Film and is co-owner of Heritage Photo & Research Services based in Indianapolis.  She is currently writing a directory of historic Indiana photographers.

This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited. As a result, RSVPs are encouraged. To RSVP or for more information call Larry Paarlberg at 765-362-5769 or email [email protected].
