  • Dick Bass, COP-San Jose, Box 102, Nov 1958

    Dick Bass, COP-San Jose, Box 102, Nov 1958

    The date is November 8, 1958 and College of Pacific is playing San Jose State. I’ve indicated before to keep a close eye on all of Joel’s football images of 1956-1959. There are plenty of them showing #22, so I checked who was wearing the jersey. Dick Bass. From Pacific website Hall of Fame: Joel […]

  • Soap Box Derby, Box 101, 1958

    Soap Box Derby, Box 101, 1958

    This derby took place on July 11, 1958 in Stockton. The pilot’s T-shirts in the images all read Karl Ross Post 16, American Legion. Safe to assume this is about a yearly event to see who qualifies for the All American Derby Down in Akron, Ohio Soap Box Derby. That’s where the real prize money […]

  • Smith & Lang Fire, JFC, July 1958

    Smith & Lang Fire, JFC, July 1958

    There’s a lot written about the Smith & Lang Fire in Stockton, July 22, 1958 already. Scanning 4 x 5 negatives from Jessica Fong’s Collection, I came across these 3 larger negatives. It puzzled me at first, as one wouldn’t necessarily take a 4 x 5 view camera to a fire to report on, but […]

  • COP Football, Box 100, 1958

    COP Football, Box 100, 1958

    The rest of of the negatives in box 100 are all related to football matches at COP. There’s of course the Arizona State match of September 27, 1958, but also Brigham Young University (BYU) on October 11, 1958, and finally, Cincinnati on October 18, 1958. I can’t tell from the images alone which negatives belong […]

  • Sammy Davis Jr., Box 100, Sep 1958

    Sammy Davis Jr., Box 100, Sep 1958

    Hard to believe we looked through some 100 press format negative boxes since we started this journey in March 2022. Not to count the many Kodachromes and other format negatives Joel photographed between 1938 and now. So far, I’ve scanned 2700+ negatives and shown 2650+ of them. September 27, 1958 is what Joel wrote on […]
