National Comedy Center to digitize Lucille Ball archives


JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (AP) — Handwritten notes and family photographs belonging to Lucille Ball will be
digitally preserved as part of a new project being undertaken by the National Comedy Center in the late
actress’s hometown.
The center in western New York announced plans Friday to digitize the archives of the Lucille Ball Desi
Arnaz Museum in marking the 30th anniversary of the "I Love Lucy" star’s death.
Much of the material, which also includes behind-the-scenes production papers and telegrams, has never
been exhibited. Museum officials say it will be made available in the coming years.
The interactive National Comedy Center opened last summer near the existing Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz
Museum. The interactive National Comedy Center builds on Ball’s vision for a museum that celebrates all
comedy as an art form.
