Congratulations Howard Speed

Howard Speed, who has been a member of PACC since 2014 was honoured on Friday March 17th at the SAPF AGM by the Management Committee for his extraordinary contribution to the SAPF as resident Historian.

I quote a portion of the article from the SAPF website:

Howard has served the SAPF and affiliated clubs in many ways for several decades but has held the role of Historian for over 20 years after being asked by Doug and Barbara Mullins to take care of the Permanent Collection. This comprises slides, prints and digital images as well as photographic equipment.

Howard holds a wealth of knowledge of the history of photography in South Australia and is very proud of the achievements of his home state on the national and international photographic stage. He has written several booklets on various aspects of SA photographic history and still offers talks to our clubs on various historical topics of interest. In his eighties he is still busy interviewing his peers to ensure that their history is not lost.

We are very proud to have Howard as a member of the Port Adelaide Camera Club and congratulate him on his achievements.
