Join us on Saturday, April 1st from 2 pm - 4 pm for a free presentation by James Perry, Executive Director of the Monterey County Historical Society about the Pat Hathaway collection. Monterey County Historical Society – Monterey County History: Through the Lens of Pat Hathaway, Annand Gallery Mr. Pat Hathaway, raised in Pacific Grove, assembled one of California’s largest privately held image collections. Upon his return to the Monterey Peninsula in 1968 after serving in the Vietnam war, Pat immediately began collecting historical images and also focused on his own passion for photography. In fact, his first exhibition was here at the Pacific Grove Art Center in 1968 where he was also in residence. Before passing suddenly in January 2021, Pat managed to assemble over 80,000 historical images, mostly of the Monterey Peninsula, Salinas Valley & California dating to the 1850s. His love of photography was immense as evidenced by over 470,000 of his own images chronicling over five decades of daily life on the Monterey Peninsula. His collection is now preserved in the vaults of the Monterey County Historical Society. For more information, call 831-375-2208, email email@example.com or go to the website, www.pgartcenter.org.
