Dennis Bell, the current owner of the Athletic Model Guild and founder of the Bob Mizer Foundation (a 501(c)3 non-profit), is cataloging and archiving every single image and will eventually make the entire collection available for viewing by the general public.
His current Kickstarter campaign is to help finance the proper storage of Mizer's 700,000 35mm transparencies. Yes, you read that right: 700,000.
|This is a small portion of Bob Mizer's estate, prior to its rescue.|

|Each transparency is sorted, inserted into sleeves cataloged, photographed and placed into protected storage.|
