      M.B.C.A. Historian Project — 2004
 

        In an effort to preserve M.B.C.A. history and heritage along with the knowledge shared by members through the years, copies of club scrapbooks and publications from 1958 through 1982 were scanned, printed, and made available to members by Bill Jones.
        These pages provide a chronological history of our hobby and the collectors that made it what it is today (35 files, 1139 pages, 160mb).
