The Video History Project has been a collaborative effort among hundreds of people since 1994. We extend many thanks to all the organizations and individuals who have contributed so much to this on-going effort. The project was conceived and is directed by Sherry Miller Hocking.

Special thanks to Ralph Hocking, for his patience, and to his grandfather William Joseph Hocking, who may have inspired Ralph’s love of machines.
Special thanks, also, to Kathy High and Mona Jimenez who collaborated with Sherry Miller Hocking on the book The Emergence of Video Processing Tools: Television Becoming Unglued (Intellect Press, 2014) One of our many inspirations was the Video History Project.
Special thanks to Matthew Schlanger for redesigning and rebuilding this site in Drupal and for migrating the databases. Matthew is our webmaster. Thanks to David Jones for his willingness, his curiosity and his obsessions. He put together the original vhp site web database.
And to Arthur Tsuchiya who many years ago spoke of the power of the Web for the arts
