Exciting News for History and Photography Lovers!!!

Monterey County Historical Society is awarded over 80,000 historic photos and hundreds of thousands of digital images, maps and more from the Pat Hathaway Collection

The huge unrivaled collection of historical images collected by the late Pacific Grove photographer, Pat Hathaway, has been awarded to the Monterey County Historical Society, located in Salinas. Pat Hathaway died January 6, 2021 without a will, which meant his estate – and the future of more than 80,000 photos he’d collected over his lifetime – went through probate court for a judge to decide what would happen to his outstanding collection.

On December 24th, the court agreed with conservator Kent Seavey’s proposal to gift the entire collection to the Monterey County Historical Society. James Perry, executive director of the Monterey County Historical Society, said the Hathaway collection of photographs, maps and images going back to the 1840's, is “way too important to stay locked up in a vault.” James adds, "It will take several months to organize the collection for the public to access it but we look forward to sharing this historic treasure with our local community and beyond. All I truly hoped for was that Mr. Hathaway's collection would remain in Monterey County but still be accessible to visitors. I am very grateful that the Monterey County Historical Society had the appropriate facilities to accept this gift with a secure temperature-controlled safe environment."
