|NG&HS welcomes local photographer|
The Northeast Genealogical & Historical Society met on Sunday, Jan. 11, at the main branch of the Ouachita Parish Public Library on Stubbs Avenue in Monroe.
James Free presided. He welcomed guests and made announcements. He reminded members that the quarterlies were ready and could be picked up at the meeting.
Lois Ferguson introduced the speaker, Glen Gore. His topic was "The History of the Ouachita." He brought many photos of the Ouachita River at different angles and areas. He also had outdated calendars with beautiful color pictures of the Ouachita, along with a little history on each month for everyone at the meeting. His journey began in 1989.
He told of his many trips up and down the river, exploring and taking pictures. He said at first he took pictures with a 35 mm camera, but became very frustrated because of lack of experience with a camera. By 1992, he had gotten a video camera and with the help of his son, became very proficient with that. He has logged perhaps 300 of the 600 miles of the river. He also has logged about 120 hours with the video camera and has close to 8,000 35mm photos.
He told several stories about his adventures, both in Arkansas and Louisiana. He also told the club about the Steam Boat competitions from town to town along the river.
Gore said he was commissioned by the Corp of Engineers to photograph the levee along the Ouachita and that he helped stop the cutting of all trees within 15 feet of the levee. Now he has been asked to photograph the mounds along the river.
Gore also said he is in the process of putting things together for a book.
