National Geographic's Collectors Corner

Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

Nat Geo's Twitter account posts my Pictorial Geography scans . . .


If anyone here has a Twitter account, you can view a post from Sunday, November 22nd. It is the first in a series called "That's Geography: Bite Size Social Posts". The Twitter feed is Nat Geo Education, a group aimed at teachers whose mantra is "where education meets exploration".

Cathy Hunter let me know that they inquired whether the Pictorial Geography series was in the Society Archives, which they are, but the Archives staff had not yet been able to scan them for posterity. Back in May I had scanned all 288 plates (card sheets) and posted them here at the 'Corner. In August, Cathy asked me if I would be willing to share the scans with the Archives Division. I sent a thumb drive with all the scans to Society HQ in September. It turned out to be perfect timing for the staff at @NatGeoEducation to desire to use them! 

I'm gratified that my time spent scanning them all was useful for NGS. Here's the direct link to the specific Twitter post, if you can view it ---> 

and my re-tweet, with their reply, 

best regards,

*note in my Twitter re-tweet, I typed "266" plates instead of "288", oops!

Cograts Scott !!!

It is a well earned honor.

I don't have a twitter account but Linda & Julia (ex-teacher & teacher) do.

Well done Scott - enjoy your work!


P.S. Replied on twitter as well.

Nice work Scott. Cathy had asked me if I thought you would be willing to share. I somehow knew you would. Having worked with Cathy for 25 years, it is still a great feeling when I can share with them and especially when they share. I owe Renee Braden, Cathy Hunter, and now the entire archive staff a debt of gratitude for all of their help over the years with my research into Albert W. Stevens and the Stratosphere Balloon flights.
