Photo Album 7

Return to Visual Media

The PBPF Photo Albums (numbered 1 through 9) were originally organized by the long-time resident of Wisdom’s Goldenrod, Carol DeAntoni. This was done several years after PB’s death, possibly with input from PB’s direct students Anthony and Ella May Damiani. Some albums have themes, such as Photo Album 3, which is primarily pictures of PB.
