For their pandemic project Don and Dena Kopczynski helped preserve over 700 glass-plate negatives from the archive of photographer Henry F. Nuxoll depicting life in the Greencreek, Idaho, area from 1900 to 1925. Don spent weeks digitally scanning the images and Dena produced a book with more than 400 of Nuxoll’s photographs to give to Nezperce, Idaho, attorney Mike Wasko, who was named the custodian of the treasure trove of Nuxoll family photos.
