SALUTE TO RAY MARIN - THE MUSEUM'S MAN OF THE MONTH FOR OCTOBER 2008
Thanks to Ray Marin for his willingness to share his treasure trove of North Hollywood High School history, your Museum has a powerful insight into life at his alma mater in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Ray presented the Museum with a great compact disc featuring 8mm films made on the North Hollywood High School campus, along with music and photographs from the era. Your Museum has shared with alumnae women from Providence High School in Burbank, Valley advertisements from 1958 and other items to bring back memories for their 50th reunion.
Ray Marin understands the value of small items to help tell a bigger story. Below is an "Atomic Bomb" children's toy ring. It speaks more than words about the impact of "the bomb" on a far more naive world than our own. ... And, the bomb is made of lead no less.

THANKS RAY - WE APPRECIATE YOUR HELP!
The San Fernando Valley, in the heart of the Creative Capital of the World, deserves a great Museum of history and culture.
