History of the Lawrence Color Camera Club

The Lawrence Color Camera Club was organized around 1952. The objective of the club was to stimulate interest in color photography; to improve camera technique; and to better the quality of transparencies through constructive criticism. The club met bi-weekly, its year running from April to March. Membership was open to anyone interested in color photography who paid the annual dues.
