Martha & Sol Sigall have recently completed an extensive project organizing the Society’s collection of MGM production photos.

Under the guidance of our VP, Museum/ARC, Winston Gieseke, and the help of our great volunteers, we have uncovered many interesting and unique items in our Archives. I’d like to tell you about a very remarkable document that is currently on display at the ARC: a publication of the Culver City Evening Star News, dated Friday, August 18, 1944, called “The Honor Roll.”
It is a special edition of the newspaper that pictured and listed all of the men and women from Culver City who served in World War II. It lists their addresses, their school affiliations and where and how they were serving.
