The annual meeting of the Friends of the Yellowstone Gateway Museum is followed by a 7:00 PM program entitled “A Look at the Photography of John C. Haberstroh.” The presentation is free and open to the public.
Museum Director Paul Shea and photographer Rob Park team up for the evening’s program, “A Look at the Photography of John C. Haberstroh.” Shea begins the program portion of the evening, giving biographical information about Haberstroh who was born in Iowa in 1878 and moved to the Livingston area in 1900. Haberstroh was a partner in the Sax and Fryer store, managing the photographic department there until his retirement in 1944. He continued taking photographs until 1956. Park will give a slideshow of John C. Haberstroh images, including agricultural and Northern Pacific Railway Livingston Shop themes. He will also include a sampling of other images that cover a myriad of Park County subjects, giving the audience a sneak peek of the museum’s Haberstroh Collection that was recently donated by Dean and Pat Brandon. Park and the museum welcome public comment from the crowd regarding the images.
Members of the Friends non-profit organization and others interested in learning about the museum are urged to attend the annual meeting. People only interested in the program are welcome to slip in at 7:00 PM when there will be a break for refreshments.
