The new online catalogue dedicated to the artist Frances Hodgkins is now live! The website is an online catalogue of the New Zealand expatriate artist’s known paintings, watercolours and drawings, ranging from 1886 to 1946. You can search across artworks, and relates exhibitions, people and locations. The site also includes digitised and transcribed letters written by Hodgkins, her family and friends, as well as a wide range of related photographs and documents. The catalogue will continue to be updated as new material becomes available.
The California Historical Society is pleased to announce that 4,467 slides and negatives from the Peoples Temple Publications Department Records have been digitized and are available for public viewing and research online. The photographs provide new visual documentation of Peoples Temple’s political, religious, and cultural activities, as well as daily life in Redwood Valley, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Jonestown. This work was made possible by a generous grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC). The collection was processed by project archivists Isaac Fellman and Lynda Letona and digitized by Two Cat Digital of San Anselmo.
