Remastered videos & other Archive changes

The video clips have been remastered and uploaded to youtube with links from the video page.

Two new categories have been added to the Images section. Visual Art replaces the category previously called Paintings. In addition, because of the abundance of Cabinet Cards, we are currently in the process of pulling them out of the general Photographs category and placing them in their own section.

Three new programs — a 66-page program and a 34-page program from 1877 as well as a program from May 31, 1886 — have been uploaded.

The first scrapbook — a 1914 scrapbook filled with newspaper clippings — has been added to the Archive.
