Identifying the Dan Rios photographs

Graphic for Dan Rios photograph identification project QR code.

Project description

The Dan Rios papers contain an estimated 1,000,000 historic images related to our local community, including North San Diego County people, places, and events dating from 1968-2001. Some of these photographs are well-documented. For others, we have little or no information. So we're asking for your help! Through this project, you will help us identify people, places, events, and/or dates in Dan's photographs so that we can correct this missing information in our archival records.

Am I a good fit for this project?

This project is best for people who have a long history in North San Diego County; people who have lived, worked, and studied here during the years of 1970 and 1980. Participation is easy and welcome!
