Currently, we are seeking to complete our periodical collection. We are missing the following issues of the Citrus and Vegetable Magazine:
June through December, 2001
January through August, 2002
March through June, 2003
Citrus Industry Magazine missing issues are: January, 2002 and any issues prior to 1943.
We also need a copies of the FSHS Proceedings for 1910, 1911, 1918, 1924-1930, 1934-36, 1938 & 1939.
Also, we get a great many calls for photographic images of packing houses, processing plants, groves, equipment, individuals, activities (like picking, spraying), and sometimes those requests are specific (requires identified images) and sometimes non-specific--just any from a particular time period (need not be identified except for the approximate date).
We are scanning the images we have and posting them on the website so generously donated by TheFouthMedium, but the process is time-consuming and progress is slow.
However, when a patron calls in a request, we are generally fairly successful in locating what is needed and getting it to him. Any image you have connected in any way with citrus could be a potential donation.
