AMP 2018 – Digitization Day at the John J. Wilcox Archives

Posted on behalf of Celia Caust-Ellenbogen

On October 27th, the John J. Wilcox Archives at the William Way LGBT Community Center welcomed community members for a digitization day. Oriented towards empowering the LGBT community to value their stories and safeguard their histories, the event serves a dual purpose of growing the Archives’ digital collections – check out their newly launched digital library at! By the end of the day, nearly 300 images had been scanned, and five (analog) donations had been added to the collection. Not bad for a rainy Saturday afternoon!
