The monument is owned and administered by the State of Illinois as Lincoln Tomb State Historic Site.

1965 photos: From 1963 to 1966, our family lived in Chappaqua, New York while Dad worked for Standard Oil of New Jersey in the 30 Rock building in New York City.
From 1954 to 1975, the bulk of these pictures were taken by my Dad, Glenn Guthrie At the time, he was using a complicated, but normal for the day, manual Kodak with light meters and such. All of Dad's pictures from this time were slides.
Image quality is going to be variable because these are scans of slides and/or prints.
The images shown here were scanned in two phases. In the early years of the website, I rescanned a selection of pre-digital images, all at fairly low quality settings. During the COVID pandemic, I launched the Great Rescanning Effort, rescanning ALL of my pre-digital images from various media (prints, slides, negatives, etc) at higher resolution and quality settings. Mutilple versions of images -- some from the initial scannning phase, some from prints, some from slides/negatives -- were posted so there are frequently duplicate images on the same page. At some point, I hope to have time to do a final review and get rid of the duplicates but that'll have to wait until all of the pre-digital images are finally posted.
Family trips this year: Cross-country drive to visit Dad's folks San Diego, CA with stops in lots of national parks on the way (biggest ones being Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Mount Rushmore).
