    COP Basketball, Box 105, 1959

    The images in previous blog post were all from the bench at the Pepperdine vs COP match from Feb 4, 1959. Box 105 has two more match dates scribbled on the side. San Jose State played COP on January 16, 1959 and USF played COP on Feb 13, one week after the Pepperdine match. Following […]

    Naranjado, Sports, 1959, Box 105, 1959

    While Joel was at SJC and COP, he submitted with great regularity images for the Pacific Weekly and the COP yearbook, Naranjado. Quite a few of his images were published from 1942 through 1948.

I also came across 3 images Joel cropped and printed from these negatives. This gives us some insight on how Joel sees into his […]

    Soap Box Derby, Box 103, 1959

    This is the second Stockton Soap Box Derby I find in Joel’s negatives. He was covering the 4th Soap Box Derby in Stockton on Saturday, July 12, 1959. All images are photographed in press format, so Joel is most likely using his trusty Graflex RB Super D in this case. I’ve scanned attached the newspaper […]
