LAFF Society


More From the Archives


These pictures represent a continuing effort by the newsletter to offer LAFF’s members a glimpse into their past, and to gather more background on the Foundation’s history.
The pictures are from Ford’s vast collection housed at the Rockefeller Archive Center, which is always on the lookout for photos and documents that members would be willing to donate. If members can provide information on these photos, or would like to donate their own records, they can contact Rachel Wimpee at
And should any of the pictures prompt a memory that a member would like to share, the newsletter always is interested in publishing such articles.
