From your Museum’s inception, our plans have been to make San Fernando Valley history accessible to all of the residents of our many communities. The Museum’s Secretary (and founding Vice President), Gary Fredburg works tirelessly to identify potential sites for our future mobile exhibits and to identify historic venues. Right now, Gary is studying structures of architectural or historical importance that might act as satellite locations for our many planned activities.
Just for the joy of it, and in anticipation of the re-opening of historic Phil’s Diner in North Hollywood, Gary is searching for pristine copies of Phil Everly’s vinyl L.P., “Phil’s Diner”. The Museum of the San Fernando Valley plans to have an exhibit in the NoHo about the history of Phil’s Diner in conjunction with its re-opening. In the process, Gary Fredburg is also collecting information about the life and career of the great recording artist Phil Everly.
In addition to this work, Gary also searches for San Fernando Valley memorabilia to add to The Museum’s archives. Last week he gave your Museum:
California Earthquake 71 soft back pictorial book
Church in San Fernando 1949 (historic postcard)
Sepulveda Methodist Church 1962 (North Hills) (postcard)
Long Building - Mission San Fernando 1985 (postcard)
