Maverick Festival photographs

A former library science student of mine, Jane Ward, wrote to me this week and told me of a collection of photographs that have gone online from her library (Woodstock Public Library District). These photos circa 1923 of the Maverick Festival are part of the Hudson River Valley (NY) Heritage Digital Collection, which is a growing collection of materials from that area of New York State. Jane reports that she is involved in scanning and creating metadata. Although 24 images does not seem like much, they show an interesting view of outdoor theater in that era.

The Hudson River Valley Heritage Digital Collection was begun a couple of years ago. The About section of the web site contains information that other digital imaging projects would find interesting including the lists of best practices that were recommended for use.
