Glenn Galbraith, great-great grandson of Albert R. Stone, Rochester’s first newspaper staff photographer and pioneering photojournalist will discuss his family lineage and the story of how a collection of thousands of glass plates was saved by his grandmother and how it inspired him to re-photograph images (baring urban development) and what he plans to do with ROC Archive, a regional archive dedicated to the collection, preservation and accessibility of the region's audiovisual media.
Glenn Galbraith holds a Certificate in Film and Media Preservation and a B.S. in Photography Gallery Management. In addition to his current work at the Livonia Area Preservation & Historical Society he is Curator of the Stone Family Collection; consisting of glass plate negatives, prints, books, scrapbooks, newspaper clippings and other artifacts related to Stone photographic lineage
