Luraine Tansey Oral History, 1992
From Meredith Hale
At the request of Stanford slide librarian Nancy McCauley, Luraine Tansey talks about her career and the foundation of the Slide Curators Association (now VRA) and ARLIS/NA. In addition to working in slide libraries, Tansey was a curator, professor, woodworker, mother, and contributor to Gardner's Art Through the Ages. She discusses her career-long concern with professionalism and efficiencies in the slide library, as well as the benefits of networking. She also touches on Froebel blocks, her son Mark Tansey, and her experience apprenticing for a former Fox Movietone camera man.
