GRAY STUDIO GLASS NEGATIVES UPDATE
The Stafford County Museum was recently awarded grants for the glass negatives project from Midwest Energy,
Inc. ($400), Walmart Foundation ($250) and Golden Belt Community Foundation ($265).
Kansas Humanities Council produced five five-minute films to celebrate its 40th anniversary. One of the
films was about the Gray Studio glass negatives.
On Nov. 4, 2012, W.R. Gray (1865-1947) was featured on Hatteberg's People on KAKE-TV News.
About 6,000 photos taken from the glass negatives are accessible on the Forsythe Library (Fort Hays
State University) website, along with whatever info we found in Mr. Gray's 11 original ledgers. Corrections and clarifications
The links below will take you to the films and to the Forsythe Library archive.
