PHOTOGRAPHS AND EPHEMERA
The photo and ephemera collection is a historically significant archive of photographs from Charles N. Brown’s over five decades of involvement in the science fiction and fantasy fields, as well as letters from authors and publications from conventions, conferences, and more. The photo archive, amounting to 44 linear feet of materials, is currently housed in filing cabinets and contains records of approximately 4,000 individuals, including virtually every author of note in the science fiction and fantasy field for the last 60 years; such as Isaac Asimov, Octavia E. Butler, Robert Heinlein, Frank Herbert, Ursula K. Le Guin, Anne McCaffrey; as well as editors, publishers, book agents, and convention organizers.

A SUCCESSFUL KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN

The Locus Photo and Ephemera Archive Kickstarter campaign successfully raised its funding goal of $9,500 on May 7, 2012 and went on to earn over $20,000 from 508 backers, which will go toward a massive preservation and digitization project. This will help us stabilize the archive, digitize the photos and letters, and make available to fans, writers, scholars, and resarchers the almost 40,000 of pieces of SF/F history we have in this collection. In addition, we can begin to digitize and edit Locus‘s vast store of microcassette author interviews, as the media these interviews are stored on is highly volatile and won’t last forever. The end goal is an interactive gallery of historical photos and ephemera on the Internet available to fans, writers, scholars, and researchers.

Funding for this project covers the cost of archival and preservation supplies such as: acid free tissue for interleaving documents, plastic sleeves for preserving significant photographs, acid free folders for organization, acid free labels and pens, a mid-range document and film scanner, long term archival storage boxes, a dedicated server, and the cost of website construction.

Further donations to the archiving project as well as to the LSFF in general are welcome and are fully tax deductible, to the extent allowable by law. Donations can be made by clicking on the yellow DONATE button in the top right sidebar. Please donate today.

Who is responsible for this awesomeness?
