Edna Banta Munford Photo Collection Donated to Sonoma State University

Last week I sent the Edna Banta Munford collection of 120 photographs to Sonoma State University. There were several related lines included, Banta/Simmons/Wyatt/Phinney were the main surnames. My favorite photo was of James Simmons who was a fireman for the LA fire department, possibly Long Beach. I emailed the firehouse museum there but nobody replied.
Lloyd Simmons of Sonoma and his family were the subjects of half of the photos. There were two pictures of him in his Pharmacy/general store in Sonoma. I worked on these all summer and am glad to see them go to an accessable archives.

For further information contact The San Diego Genealogical Society. It is unknown as of 2013 what has become of their digital copy of these photos as their library has moved to the new downtown library in downtown San Diego. Contact Committee Chair Bonnie Fago for details. gsgenealogy has no further information other than what is in this post.
