Archivist Colin Torre presents newly digitized material from the Clark's archives, focusing on two collections of scrapbooks compiled by the Director’s Office between the 1950s and 1990s. The scrapbooks document the founding and early years of the Clark’s history, including contemporary press, announcements, exhibitions, and special events. They also provide an interesting perspective into the difficulties of preserving and providing access to fragile and unstable archival material. Torre discusses how the Clark cares for these objects, why they have been digitized, and how we relate this digital material to other areas of the Clark’s collections.
