Projects: National Comedy Center to Digitize Lucille Ball Archives
From the Associated Press:
Handwritten notes and family photographs belonging to Lucille Ball will be digitally preserved as part of a new project being undertaken by the National Comedy Center in the late actress’s hometown.
More From the National Comedy Center:
The National Comedy Center, which last month was designated by the United States Congress as the official national cultural institution dedicated to comedy, will begin to digitize hundreds of documents, photographs and media in the archives, in order to preserve this material for future generations and make it accessible to comedy fans from around the world. These archives include behind-the-scenes production papers, rare family and studio photographs, handwritten notes, letters and telegrams from notable figures to Ball and Arnaz, and much more – most of which have never been exhibited previously. This archival material will be made available within the National Comedy Center and Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum exhibits in the coming years.
A selection of rare photos and artifacts from the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum archives can be found here.
