Welcome to the Watkins Photographic Archive Project website. The Project’s goal is to make my extensive collection of photographs available online to the public. To help make this Project a reality, I have teamed up with the Central Valley Community Foundation and Fresno State’s Henry Madden Library.
Until the Project is up and running through the Madden Library's Special Collection’s website, you can view and individually download from over 210,000 historic and current photographs through the “Photographs” link (currently covering September of 2007 to present). The Index lists links to each event by date. You can search by date or a key word in the title of the event. For now, you may individually download my photographs for personal, non-commercial use for free.
As this is my personal website, I have included a link to some of my Family Genealogy. Also, the Potpourri link has some very interesting items I think you will enjoy.
The success of this historic Photo Archive Project is dependent on sufficient funding. If you would like to support the Project, you may do so with a tax-deductible donation to the “Central Valley Community Foundation” (5260 N. Palm Avenue, Ste 122, Fresno, CA 93704) with a notation that it is for the "Watkins Photo Archive Project." To make an online tax-deductible donation to the Howard K.
