This Tuesday, Glenn Galbraith will give a talk about his great-great grandfather Albert R. Stone. He was Rochester’s first newspaper staff photographer and a pioneering photojournalist. Glenn will discuss his family lineage and the story of how a collection of thousands of glass plates was saved by his grandmother. It inspired Glenn to re-photograph images (baring urban development).
Glenn Galbraith holds a Certificate in Film and Media Preservation and a B.S. in Photography Gallery Management. In addition to his current work at the Livonia Area Preservation & Historical Society he is Curator of the Stone Family Collection; consisting of glass plate negatives, prints, books, scrapbooks, newspaper clippings and other artifacts related to Stone photographic lineage. He also has ROC Archive, a regional archive dedicated to the collection, preservation and accessibility of the region’s audiovisual media.
This talk is being presented by the Greece Historical Society. It is at the Greece Public Library (2 Vincent Tofany Blvd.) at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. March 8th.
