On behalf of the Executive Board of the Los Angeles As Subject Forum, I'd like to give you an early invitation to our 4th Annual Archives Bazaar. Now imitated in Austin and Chicago we continue this gathering of artists, students, hipsters and historians, mingling in a treasure trove of L.A. history browsing with archivists, curators, and librarians from the many collections of Los Angeles. Presented by L.A. as Subject, a research collective hosted by the USC Libraries, the Bazaar offers numerous resources for exploring the rich histories of L.A.'s diverse neighborhoods and communities and virtually any subject related to the Los Angeles region.

The Charles Von der Ahe Library on the Westchester campus of Loyola Marymount University is closing and all library operations will reopen for fall in the new William Hannon Library nearby. Here's the opening staff following dedication of the Von der Ahe in 1959.

An excellent story in a recent Sports Illustrated, Slide Show is an inside look at the magazine's catalogers at work. You can learn many things from the notes and codes found on the 35mm slide mount. Similiarly it can be good to think of this for other collections as well.
In some cases before upgrading temporary storage boxes to final quality archival boxes care may be taken to preserve the record of these temp box markings especially so if the labeling was made by the creator and is best evidence of original order. Quick reference photos of the old boxes can be saved for the archivists accession file during final processing.

Still looking for more Rose Parade images I found a nice set of photo prints from a Stan Kenton Orchestra concert on campus in the Alumni Memorial Gym. Replacing June Christy as the Kenton vocalist, Ann Richards also becomes Kenton's wife. He is paying keen attention to his new singer on campus at Loyola in 1955.

With Mike's transfer of campus images and Carmen Mitchell's interest for the AJCU site I'm revisiting a lot that make me smile. Here's a comic publicity shot done for the Lions football team of the Thirties.

Before leaving for Santa Clara U. Michael Engh, S.J. ('72) transferred some of his campus photos and ephemera.
There is a companion image to this of the Baldwin Hills completing a 180 degree pan of Venice, Mar Vista, West LA, Culver City and Inglewood in the Forties.
More of Mike's records will be found with those of other Bellarmine deans and faculty within Rec Group 12.
