From the Vault

Rancho Mirage
Past Event

Filled with correspondence, photos, and artifacts from the Annenbergs’ famous friends and visitors, the Sunnylands archives have been compared to a presidential library. Memorabilia from Hollywood’s elite and British royalty reside there, too, from the dress Barbara Sinatra wore to wed Frank Sinatra at Sunnylands to letters from Prince Charles.

On December 6, ticket holders to “From the Vault” will be among the first to step inside Sunnylands’ new archive building. The archive staff will display some of the historic items and discuss how they are preserved, catalogued and identified. Learn why and how an item’s owners can add to its value and get hands-on experience in the best practices for digitizing your own family photos.

A reception from 7 to 8 pm will follow the program.
