CSUSM: Photographer’s Donated Collection Helps Preserve History of Region

California State University San Marcos: Photographer’s Donated Collection Helps Preserve History of Region. “Thanks to the wisdom of [Bill] Dendle, the diligence of [Dan] Rios and the help of some history-loving friends, Rios’ life’s work as a photojournalist now belongs to the Cal State San Marcos library in perpetuity. Donated in 2018, the Dan Rios Papers, as the library’s Special Collections department has coined it, consists of an estimated one million images that were originally stashed in more than 40,000 envelopes and almost 200 boxes. The collection also contains large- and medium-format prints, contact sheets and hundreds of letters that Rios received over the years from readers who were affected by his photos.”
