Rebecca Phipps of Lawrence (pictured on the right) conducted a workshop for glass negatives volunteers at the museum library on March 15. There were seven participants including Ron and Anne Moore from Wichita and Lyn Fenwick (left) of Macksville. Phipps’ workshop revealed why the contents of the glass negatives are important from historical and genealogical standpoints. She also brainstormed ideas on how to publicize the glass negatives and to help the public get the most out of them. After the workshop Rebecca joined volunteers for a work session. – (photo by Marion L. Hearn)
