Cataloging The Archives

At the beginning of Janauary a team of six volunteers, lead by our volunteer curator Douglas Babb and Moog enthusiast/historian Brian Kehew gathered for five solid days to begin the cataloging process of Bob’s Archives. We certainly accomplished quite a bit, but given the extensive nature of the archives, only about 25% have been cataloged. Our work continues – and what fascinating work it is! During the five day process, there were repeated exclamations of “Wow, look at this!” or “I’ve never seen this before!!” or “I never knew Bob worked on that!”. The discoveries were priceless! A special thanks to Doug, Brian, Wheat Williams, August Worley, David Hamilton and Jarod White for your help!

Look below to see photos of the cataloging process, and to see some of the historical treasures that we have uncovered. Click here to watch a video about the archiving process. We continue our campaign to raise $50,000.00 to proceed with the first step to preserving Bob’s archives. To aid this effort, donate today!
