My life in pictures…

Books aren’t the only way to get the information you are looking for from Library resources. This week I am taking a peek at the AP Images (Formerly known as AP Multimedia Archive) Database. With just one search I was able to find all the images the Associated Press was posting on August 10, 1978.

Tom Baker is Doctor Who, Lee Iaococca is the Chairman at Chrysler, Jonestown is a tragedy, Edward Kennedy is still a trim guy, Vijay Amritraj, Bjorn Borg, and Martina Navratilova dominate the world of tennis, Wink Martindale is a celebrity and not just a funny name, Rod Carew plays for the Minnesota Twins, the Leo Tolstoy Museum opens, Mario Andretti wins the 1978 German Grand Prix, Cher has most of her original parts, Spanish surrealist Joan Miro is still alive and kicking, Jon Madden’s hair is red, Pope Paul VI dies, and Arnold Palmer is still a golfer and not just a tasty mix of ice tea and lemonaid.

What happened on your birthday in pictures?
