Photos of Past Mayors on Display at Maryville, IL Village Hall

Maryville honors past, present mayors

Village of Marysville, Illinois, near St. Louis, recently honored the men who held the top post in the villages century-long history. Board Trustee Rod Schmidt spent 18 months researching the mayors in his quest for 16 pictures to hang in the board meeting room of Maryville Village Hall.

MARYVILLE - They sold beer, mined coal, ran businesses and watched a village grow. Maryville's 15 former mayors added both taxes and lore to the village's 104-year history.

The first mayor in 1902 was John Enz, a coal miner from Ohio who later died of lung disease at age 35. Mayor No. 10, James Donovan, who served for nine years, moved to St. Louis after the stock market crash of 1929 and became lost to historians.

Preserving the History of Sparks High School, Sparks, Maryland

Sparks High School: More Than a Memory
Two North County, Maryland residents, Wayne McGinnis and Dorcas Ensor Schaeffer are working to preserve the history of Sparks High School. The school opened nearly 100 years ago in 1909 as Agricultural High School serving the students in the farming community. The name was changed to Sparks High School about 1920.
Converted to an elementary school in 1953 when the Hereford Junior/Senior High School opened, the building was destroyed by fire in 1995.
The first class photo they've been able to find is from 1915. They also have a class list of the 15 graduates that year, plus a photo of the boys' basketball team.
They want Sparks High graduates, and families of alumni who are deceased, to dig through boxes in attics, as well as in closets and basements. They'll take anything - class photos, school newspapers, class lists, team photos, graduation announcements, play programs, report cards.

Shoe Box of Soldier Photos Restored

Historical Society Restores Shoe Box of Old World War II Soldier Photos
MINOT, N.D. - Ward County Historical Society officials are gathering information on 60-year-old soldier photographs they have restored.

The photos were taken between 1942 and 1945 by the owner of a defunct Minot bar, who would then tack them up on his walls. The more than 600 pictures were donated to the historical society last year - crumpled up in a shoe box.

Society President Paul Robinette took a class on photo restoration, and officials made their own humidification chamber that brought the pictures back to life.

Granite Falls Museum Puts Photos On Line

Granite Falls, WA Historical Museum Puts 5000 Historic Photos On Line

Known for its displays of old technology, the Granite Falls Historical Museum is using new technology to build a wider audience.

Museum volunteers have put about 5,000 historic photos - its entire collection - online.

The museum has accumulated photos and other historic items since it opened in 1971. But there's a difference between collecting and a collection, museum spokesman Fred Cruger said.

"Now, we're trying to make it accessible," he said.

Officials have built a database of old photos and maps. Later this year, they hope to break ground on a new 3,000-square-foot building.

Old Photos - History in the making.

Florida Memory Project: They see your photos as history in the making.

History didn't end yesterday. So keep the Florida Memory Project in mind when you sift through Grandma's old photos - and when you're clicking off shots on your digital camera.

"Today's photo is tomorrow's history," said Rivers Buford III, legislative-affairs director for the Florida Department of State. "If we don't start (saving) modern pictures, there's going to be a gap in the archives."

The Florida Memory Project is the Department of State's four-pronged collection of state history: video, audio, online classroom and still photos. All four components are available online, though the Florida Photographic Collection is the star: Its site draws an incredible 200,000 visitors a month.
