FAU Works to Digitally Restore Images from Phonograph Records Flooded during Sandy

Florida Atlantic University's Recorded Sound Archives (RSA) hopes to digitize sound and restore images from 786 vintage kiddie records that were flooded in October 2012 following Hurricane Sandy. Muldavin, also known as the Kiddie Rekord King, donated the water-damaged records to the RSA, which collects, organizes and protects access to digitized copies of vintage audio recordings at the Wimberly Library on FAU's Boca Raton campus. This is the most extensive restoration for the RSA, which has been restoring phonograph recordings for more than a decade. Some of the digital images and music files from the records are expected to be available through RSA's password-protected Research Station by January 2014.
