Jon Crispin's Notebook

Willard Suitcases / Rodrigo L again

Willard Suitcases

I am back to editing more of Rodrigo L’s papers.  This is an amazing photo postcard. / Rodrigo lived in Salt Lake City during his high school years.  Many of his yearbooks are in his collection as well as a ton of materials related to his Pilipino experience in the US .

He came to the American West sometime in the early part of the 20th Century, which makes me wonder what his experience adapting to his new life was like.

You can check out the latest at the suitcases site.

I have just three more shoots to edit.  I have a feeling that when I finish that part of the project I will be very emotional and a little bit at sea.  Still lots to do though, including finding a publisher and museums / galleries for exhibits.  I started shooting the cases in March of 2011.  It has been quite a run.  Thanks for following.

    I have loved the pictures, too, and wonder about the people they represent. Thank you for the project—you have done a fabulous job of paying tribute to the folks of Willard, and of similar institutions everywhere.

    Now, please post more pictures of Olive. :o)
