Library gets Hubbard collection

The photo and slide collection of JoAn Hubbard, a lifetime resident of Colfax who recently moved to Lacey to reside near her son, Rick, has been donated to Whitman County Library. Included in the collection are photographs which were given to her by Bill Walters, Colfax commercial photographer. Hubbard worked for Walters, who had his studio on Mill Street, from 1968 until 1972.

Her collection of pictures will be available as part of the library's Whitman County Heritage Collection. They will eventually be available through the Whitman County Historical Society. For many years Hubbard shared her slide collection of historic Colfax photos through presentations at Colfax schools, churches and community groups.

These reports are from the previous four issues of the Daily Bulletin in Colfax. They are reprinted here for the benefit of Gazette readers who reside outside of Colfax. Some accounts have been updated.
