The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails South Jetty RV Resort in Florence, Oregon. I’ve been here several times before. I plan to depart from here June 5th. I’ll slow my pace and spend the rest of May and most of June along the Oregon coast. Then into the State of Washington for the summer.
Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. I’m hoping she will be able to rejoin me sometime after July 4th.
Now is a good time to finish-up the photos sets from my visit to Monterey California a couple of months ago…
Recently I spent several days in Monterey…an area rich in beautiful scenery and history. A bonanza for a travel blogger! I ended up with 17 blog titles and 628 photos which I’ll finish presenting today.
Today’s subject – Pat Hathaway Photo Archivist
Pat Hathaway is a name that has become synonymous with historical photographs on the Monterey Peninsula, with a collection of over 80,000 images dating from the 1850s-1990s.
The initial collection, received from the window of Carmel photographer Lewis Josselyn in 1970, was the start of an avocation for the Monterey Peninsula’s premier photo archivist. His archives represent the works of over 750 19th and 20th century photographers.
The Collection has been used as a resource both locally and nationally, by publications including National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, Sunset, Golf Digest and by media including Good Morning, America and CBS’s morning show Breakfast for Your Head.
Pat is a talented photographer in his own right. He has been photographing California for 44 years and is continuing the tradition of recording the Peninsula’s rich visual history for future generations.
