That's William T "Bill" Hollingshead, 1937 - 2021


Bill Hollingshead

This is in memory of Bill Hollingshead who died last month.  He was a UCD alum, a native of Woodland, and the son of a famous photographer.  During an interview on That's Life in 2009, Bill shared much of his history as well as that of his father -- Paul W Hollingshead.  We re-air that interview now so that Bill's friends can hear his voice one more time.

Bill's obituary was published by the Daily Democrat (Woodland CA) and is online at:

This show was originally described as:  "An interview with a son about treasuring his father's collection.  Paul W Hollingshead was a photographer in Woodland for over 40 years.  Paul and Vera started out with a portrait studio, but found that many folks also wanted pictures of their team, company, or memorable event.  Because Paul kept all those negatives, he had an historical treasure trove for Yolo County.  His son, Bill Hollingshead, is donating some prints to the Yolo County Archives -- which is where Lois met him.  And Bill is arranging for displays at Gibson House Museum and elsewhere.  This very interesting interview shares the Hollingshead family history as well as lots of Yolo County history.  Enjoy!"
