Patch users - we still need your help captioning our photos from .
Although we did get a kick out of 's idea!
The San Mateo County Historical Association still has many photos that need captions, after it recently purchased more than 30,000 San Mateo Times newspaper photos that span most of the 20th century and provide a glimpse into San Mateo County life and its generations.
Own a little piece of history by looking at these photos and help the association find out about the story behind each one, so the group can archive them.
Peninsula Patch sites will publish various photos as we get them - usually on Thursday or Saturday mornings - so you can help us identify them.
The first photo this week reads: Richard H. Long, January 2, 1964. Do you know what organization his uniform is for? Why was this photo in the Times in 1964?
The back of the other photo reads: Edward R. Becks, Director EOC, February 8, 1971. What does EOC stand for? Why was the director of the EOC in the Times?
Please note in the comments if you have information about the photos attached.
Then call or e-mail archivist, Carol Peterson, if you want more information. Carol can be reached by phone, (650) 299-0104, or e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org.
