New Developments at the Milpitas Historical Society’s Great Mall Display

Society members Joe Ehardt and Danny Cosper have provided a new method of presenting Milpitas history on an interactive basis at the Society’s exhibit area in the Great Mall. They have set up a 46” Samsung flat screen TV (Danny) driven by a Dell computer (Joe) that gives passing viewers a slide show of Milpitas history.

The society would like to increase the number of photos and historical narratives that will be presented on the new “kiosk.” Therefore we are asking that anyone who is a long-time resident or who went to school in Milpitas to either outright donate to our collection or simply temporarily lend us their photos, school yearbooks, and memorabilia for us to scan or photograph to add to our archive of items to show our history to Milpitans as well as to visitors with our new presentation system. The first slide show (96% complete) documents our high school marching band in the National 1776-1976 Bicentennial Celebration in Washington, D.C.
