October 2007, The renowned Bancroft Library on The UC Berkeley campus, acquired Malcolm Lubliner's entire collection of original, 5X7 film positives of historic Mexico, circa 1900. The photographs are the work of the Los Angeles based photographer G.P. Thresher and had been in Mr. Lubliner's possession since 1965. Thresher was a passionate and talented amateur, who was known for his images of California missions and his travels throughout the American south west, did some of his best work in Mexico in the years leading up the revolution. Included in the collection were original photographs of the Thresher family in their Los Angeles home and a residency document in Thresher's own hand.
