DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY 2011
This valuable old photograph, from the donation of David High to the Archives of The Museum two years ago, is a primary example of why a secure workspace is so important to The Museum Community's work. Dozens of vital Museum projects are on-hold, or slowly progressing due to the need for work space.
All of photographs and documents in the High Collection, with name designations on them have been scanned and catalogued, but many images remain yet unidentified. With an appropriate work space, The Museum can utilize student interns and community volunteers to scan and isolate each person in the High Collection. Important image recognition programs are now available to set into motion. the matching of pictures against known persons.
Photo manipulation will allow for greater clarity of this man's image. Facial recognition programs will allow The Museum to compare images in our Archives and eventually in the archives of other organizations to find identification matches.
