Toda tip

 Former Toronto Sun photog Warren Toda over at NPAC recommends a read of a recent story about a wealthy American who is buying up newspaper negatives to digitize.

Fascinating read and encouraging to see someone devote so much time and energy to preserving the wealth of history gathering dust in newspaper morgues and storage areas across North America.

The Scott Libin story at says John Rogers, a collector from Little Rock, Arkansas, is paying newspapers for their negatives, digitizing them and the newspapers retain full copyrights for future use.
