The State College Photo Club (formerly the State College Color Slide Club) was organized in 1947. By then, a few photographers living in and around State College had been using color slide film for almost a decade. One was Dr. George Johnson, a visual-aids specialist in the School of Agriculture at Penn State. Recognizing all the budding photographers George worked with following World War II, he wrote, “We must do something more than just ‘record’ shots. We must build more human interest in our slides, make them more artistic and develop more skills in their presentation.”
Under George’s guidance, and with the help of five other original organizers, this Club was formed and has been meeting on the third Monday evening of each month ever since. We meet at the Foxdale Village Meeting Room at 7:00 pm, which is near the intersection of South Atherton Street and University Drive Extension. The meeting room at Foxdale Village is located on the 2nd floor. HOWEVER, DURING 2020-2021 WE ARE MEETING VIA ZOOM.
