2009 - The Year of Valley History
Graduation Program Lankershim High School 1897 - Gift to the Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Dave High - July 2009 (click on image to enlarge)
An important collection of valuable vintage photographs has been received by your Museum from Chatsworth resident Dave High. An artist and printer by trade, Dave worked for many years at Hanna Barbera and was given the photo collection as a gift. The collection contains photographs, tin types, post card images and even this 1897 graduation program from Lankershim High School. The collection contains images from the towns of Lankershim and Toluca (then likely the same place) and pictures from the early days of Storm Lake, Iowa. (The Weddington family was among the founders of Lankershim, now North Hollywood and Toluca Lake.)
The program featured a banjo solo by Fred Weddington called: A Sketch - The Wheel of Time, with Lankershim at its Hub.
The San Fernando Valley, in the "Hub" of the Creative Capital of the World, deserves a great Museum of history and culture.
