Archival HistoryMizer originally kept these Black/white contact sheets in a series of 3-ring binders [1970s]. When the estate was packed, the sheets were relocated into boxes [1994]. Upon purchase from Wayne Stanley by Dennis Bell [2003], sheets were re-organized to Mizer's original order by John Fugazzi, volunteer of Bob Mizer Foundation. Sheets were scanned and catalogued [2012-14] by volunteers De Kwok and Denise Chiang. Database import [2020].
