Continuing on with California Revealed's harvest of 10th anniversary highlights, UC Davis Archives and Special Collections offered this wonderful agricultural film: "One of our most frequently viewed items is this 16mm film of the UC Davis Blackwelder Tomato Harvester, from the Blackwelder Manufacturing Company Records. In 1949, UC Davis agricultural engineer Coby Lorenzen and UC Davis vegetable crops researcher Jack Hanna began work on developing a harvester and a tomato variety that could withstand the rigors of mechanical picking. During the 1950s, the UC Davis team refined the experimental harvester and in 1959 Blackwelder Manufacturing of Rio Vista, California commercialized the design. The tomato harvester is said to have saved California's processed tomato industry in the 1960s. Since it was digitized in 2015, this film has been used in a number of exhibits and documentaries about farming, tomatoes, innovation, and technology. Thanks California Revealed for making this film accessible!" And thanks to UC Davis for sharing it!

When asked for a highlight from their collection, Josh from Stanford University, Manuscripts Division and University Archives said, "We're very grateful for wonderful opportunities the program has provided us over the past 10 years, including the Zimbardo recordings -- the experiment is this year celebrating its 50th anniversary."
Even fifty years later, the Stanford Prison Experiment (SPE) remains among the most notable—and notorious—research projects ever carried out.

Our partner Chris from the Archives of the Archdiocese of San Francisco suggested this highlight for us to feature for our anniversary saying, "The clip shows a Sister of Saint Joseph of Carondelet playing and communicating in sign language with the deaf children – it’s pretty adorable to watch, if I may say so."
Chris also shared that, "The California Revealed grant initiative offered our institution the incredible opportunity and the crucial support needed in order to achieve preservation and digitization goals that otherwise would have been difficult if not impossible for a small archives like ours with limited resources to achieve. As a result, some of the earliest moving images of Catholic life in the Bay Area can now be enjoyed by our local communities and beyond." Thanks Chris!

Julie, archivist at the Lanterman House shared the following about items we have digitized for Lanterman House. "The popularity of the oral histories about teaching and the formation of La Cañada School District speaks to the relevance of the past in informing the future. Current residents are looking to the past to understand how the local school district was formed and how it has had to grapple with questions of race and privilege. We were able to easily direct them to the California Revealed website to access relevant oral histories. This service has been especially important during the pandemic when people were not able to visit us in person."

Little People of America shared one of their significant collection objects with us for our anniversary: "Little People of America Conventions 1962-1967". They said, "these films are significant because most of the individuals interviewed have passed away, and current members can see these early leaders up close. Current members can hear for themselves that the basic message and mission of the organization have not changed over the years."

GLBT Historical Society shared with us one of their favorite objects from their collection: "Folsom Street Fair 1993." They said, "Folsom Street Fair continues to be a San Francisco LGBTQ+ community tradition. This video combines a moving familiarity -- summer ambiance and extravagant leather fashion that you could have seen in 1993, 2005, or 2019 without much change -- with a snapshot of specific people living out specific moments in their lives. In 1993, the AIDS pandemic was at its height; many of these people would have been sick or in mourning, and yet the video shows the moments of joy in their daily lives."
