Boxes of Late Huntington Photographer's Pictures Found, Uploaded
For the last few months, the Facebook page, Chris Spencer's Photo Box, has been uploading and posting photos that were found in an outbuilding after Spencer's passing.
Melissa Lovett Altizer located the photos and with the help of others have been sharing them on Facebook. Many of them were found in an outbuilding so their original conditions are not mint. However, you are free to check out the parades, pageants , and athletic contests which Spencer saved. Photos do not contain identification, so if you participated in high school or Marshall athletics, please check out the page for lots of memories.
Photos of Marshall games, which include those of the Young Thundering Herd, will be donated to the university archives. You can download photos that you'd like to keep. Send a private message on the page, if you'd like to inquire about obtaining the original photograph.
For those who have seen the photos and not the photographer, Chris Spencer photographed for the Wayne County News, Cabell Record, Huntington News Net, and other publications.
"I've never seen Chris Spencer without a camera in his hands," stated David Wellman, director of MU Communications. Spencer whose photographic career spanned Marshall's pre-plane crash , Young Thundering Herd, Playing for Champions, and C-USA athletic saga, has been found dead. Huntington Mayor Kim Wolfe recalls talking to Spencer on the sidelines of Marshall games in the 1970s when Wolfe was both a Huntington Police Officer and later Cabell County Sheriff. "We're saddened to hear the news," Wolfe said describing him as a "mild mannered" and "humble" man. "I considered him a friend down through the years," the Mayor said.
