Press Release: Larry Shroyer Collection

Several decades ago, the Lincoln Public Library District acquired photographs and photographic negatives that were taken by Larry Shroyer, a photographer for the Lincoln Courier. Most of the photos were taken during the 1950’s and 60’s.

Many of the negatives from this collection have been scanned and are available for public viewing. The photographs are in the process of being scanned and will soon be available as well. All are welcome to visit the Lincoln Public Library to view the scans. Plans are also being made to make several of them available for viewing each week on the library’s website.

Many of these photos were not labeled and we would appreciate help in identifying the people and events in the photos.
