Washington, DC, area, Maryland and Virginia members and friends are invited to gather for food and stories in Washington, DC at the First Quad Videotape Group Dinner at SAA (The Society of American Archivists.)
This is an extension of our ongoing lunches at NAB and Dinners at AMIA (Association of Moving Image Archivists.)
We’ll be gathering on Tuesday, Aug. 12, 7:30pm in the:
Marriott Wardman Park Hotel
Look for the Quad Reel on a table to find us.
There are restaurants in the hotel, and in the nearby Woodley Park area:
Dining suggestions welcome. We could snag a mini-van cab and head elsewhere, as we did in Richmond during the AMIA Conference.
Please RSVP off-list so I know how many to plan for.
I’ll be on-site at the hotel as of late Saturday afternoon, Aug. 9 through Sunday, Aug. 17 and would be happy to see QuadList members over the course of the visit.
From 1947 to 1958, the basement of what’s now called the Wardman Towerwas the second home of NBC-owned WNBW joining the transmitter already on the property, before both moved to the current home of NBC/WRC-TV on Nebraska Ave. NW in 1958.
See details about the historic videotape of that dedication on this link.
If you have pictures of the former WNBW/WRC-TV facilities in the Wardman Park (later called the Sheraton-Park) or other Washington, DC area television facilities (including Quad) please bring them along.
We’d love to include scans on the QuadVideotapeGroup.com website.
Hope you’re all having a good afternoon!
