Gary was the "official" photographer for the Class of 1970
presenting about 150 slides which we scanned and published
throughout the site. And he also provided 8mm films with
a little help help with some friends, converted these films
to digital format for the web. A quick inventory shows
about 2 more films that is in the process of being worked on.
You can find a partial listing of these media files on his Yearbook page.
