PIQUA DAILY CALL 1964 STAFF

PHOTOGRAPH COLLECTION

 

INTRODUCTION

 

The Piqua Daily Call 1964 Staff Photograph Collection was accessioned into the Piqua Public Library Archives and Special Collections in February 2016 as the result of a donation by Mrs. Kathryn Patton.  The collection consists of fifty-eight photographs, a 1964 Piqua Daily Call Christmas card which all the staff members signed and a list of the staff members in the order in which their pictures appeared in the collection.  Ownership of the collection has been transferred to the Piqua Public Library and there are no known restrictions on its use.  The collection is housed in a single Hollinger box containing sixty files.
