Last week we took in more images from the office of the University Photographer. These include film work by Dave Hill while he was on staff from 2000 - 2002. Seen here (2 1/4" x 7" Fuji RDPIII) is Howard Lavick and his students from the LMU School of Film and Animation.

The architects are holding meetings with the librarians this week regarding furnishing the Hannon Library. Here's Charles Willson Peale pulling back the curtain at his American Museum in Philadelphia around 1786.
The archive is looking for a spot on campus for an unusual discard. Recently LMU Public Safety Officer Chester Nichols rescued this 5' x 30' latex on oil cloth painting from disposal. Perhaps it could be useful for a student club or campus organization? Contact LMU Archives for further info.

This summer the Archives received a transfer from LMU's Campus Ministry of a 35mm color photo slide collection of numerous trips to Mexico and Central America during the mid-Eighties. The trips were arranged by the photographer and Assistant Chaplain Fernando Moreno to draw attention to the plight of the poor in Mexico and Nicaragua. Most notable are images of the La Estacion settlement, orphanages, and the Cuernavaca settlement and site of the Cortes palace. An as yet to be identified artist also created ink transparencies of many of these same sites.
