We are kicking off a series highlighting the work of our dedicated archives volunteers. The Society could not continue to organize, preserve and make accessible our amazing local history collections without their hard work and commitment to our mission.
Sue Loucks has volunteered one day a week with the Fresno County Historical Society since late 2007. An expert scanner, she is primarily responsible for the digitization of our General Subject Photograph Collection and Portrait Collection. Currently, she is working on digitizing our Poverello House photograph collection. Sue has also been instrumental in digitizing content for our programs and exhibits, as well as our grant partnership with Fresno State.
A retired nurse, Sue has had family roots in Sierra foothills since the California Gold Rush. She is an active member of the Westerners, the Oregon-California Trails Association, the Daughters of the American Republic, and the Fresno County Genealogical Society, among others. She is also a digitization volunteer with the Pop Laval Foundation. Sue has two sons and six grandchildren. Her hobbies include quilting and reading.
