  • COP Football Shoot, JFC, 1959

    COP Football Shoot, JFC, 1959

    Six negatives left over in 120 roll film format. The label on the envelope reads “COP Football, Sept 2, 1959” This confirms that Joel was shooting 120/220 format as early as 1959. I’ve seen a few other sample from that vintage float by. Joel still shoots the 3×4″ Press Format and the 4×5″ Large Format, […]

  • UOP Football, JFC, 1961

    UOP Football, JFC, 1961

    This sleeve with 4×5″ negatives from the Jessica Fong Collection of Dardis Negatives mentions Sept 27 – Nov 15, 1961, UOP Football. None of the limit dates correspond with a football match at UOP as far as my research shows. In between these two dates there are 9 matches in total. There are 9 negatives […]

  • COP – UCLA, JFC, 1957

    COP – UCLA, JFC, 1957

    Another football match recorded by Joel Dardis, with 4×5″ negatives from the Jessica Fong Collection. Joel photographed most of them with the telephoto lenses he’s been playing with from the bleachers. The date is November 16, 1957. Based on the amount of slant in the images, I assume Joel photographed from two different locations, possibly […]

  • Lens Test at COP, JFC, May 1957

    Lens Test at COP, JFC, May 1957

    With a new camera typically come new lenses. As far as I can tell, Joel used a single lens on his Press Graflex RB Super D, and that is the 152 mm Kodak Ektar lens this camera most often came with. (or a 190mm lens for the 4×5″ format Super D.) Below an images of […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Colorado & Cincinnati, Box 98, Fall 1956

    Colorado & Cincinnati, Box 98, Fall 1956

    There are two locations with dates on this box. Colorado, Sept 22, 1956 and Cincinnati Oct 6, 1956. I found a work pass for Joel under the lid. So he’s photographing on location for COP. Not sure what Joel’s official capacity was, but in light of the work pass, I assume he was invited for […]

  • Football, Box 96-97, ca 1955-56

    Football, Box 96-97, ca 1955-56

    Both box 96 and 97 had a few negative frames of COP football embedded. Neither one of the boxes had any reference to a game, but few of the sleeves from the Jessica Fong collection had various notes about football games, without any football game content. In short, I’m not sure which game this is […]

  • Majorettes and football, Box 67, 1948

    Majorettes and football, Box 67, 1948

    There are two subjects in this box. What appears to be few images from majorette out of a parade we’ve seen before. This time there’s an name, I can make out Jo Ann Fonseca-Marquard (sic). There’s also a note “Lodi Parade”. The rest are images from a Loyola – Pacific football game at night in […]
