My email is working now! Apologies, I know a few of you received bounce-back emails when you tried emailing me.
It's all fixed, and I'm back up-and-running.

Technical Difficulties & Some New Pages
Apologies in advance if you have tried emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org ... I have moved this site over to a new server (all the pages should be up and working fine!), but I had a hiccup with the transfer of my email service which I was unable to resolve before I went away on vacation for a week. I'm back and working on the problem .... my email should be up-and-running any day now!
I just put up a new page in the Interviews section with photographer Bob Deutsch. Read it here, and enjoy!
Also new to Barbra-Archives is The Barbra Streisand Timeline (1942-2004). The Timeline was written and compiled by Allison Waldman, the author of The Barbra Streisand Scrapbook and Barbra Memories. Allison was a good friend who passed away in 2013 after a long battle with cancer. I received permission from Allison's family to post her timeline on my website because—like all things Allison wrote about Ms. Streisand's career—it was meticulous and factual. Allison stopped updating her timeline in 2004, so I have left it as-is. Read the Timeline here.
I've also done a major revision on The Concert (1994-5) pages (with help from some amazing fans who've sent photos and clippings—they're credited on the pages. Thank you!) Check out those pages here:
I'm working on the Timeless (2000) concert pages ... so please email me your clippings or photos or memorabilia, and I'll make sure to credit you on the page!
One last major update: It's the 50th Anniversary of Funny Girl on Broadway (it premiered March 1964). I have revised a lot of the pages on this site, with new photos, and new info. Check these out:
- Funny Girl Main Page
- Funny Girl Opening Night
- Funny Girl Out of Town Tryouts
- Funny Girl Show Synopsis
- Funny Girl: Show vs. Movie
- Funny Girl: Dressing Room, Stage Door, Playbills
- Funny Girl: Barbra in London 1966

Thanks for the Scans!
See my January 8th post below ... thanks to the fantastic Streisand fans out there who answered my call for scans of rare Streisand items for this site! I've received some amazing stuff that I'm processing and adding to various pages of this site.
Thank you Michael Kessler, Nacho (he sent his Barbra clippings book!), Christophe, Joe Petrollese, Peter Curl, Manfred, Bill Muzzillo, David, and Rick (his custom-designed Streisand art collection is pictured below)—and apologies if I did not mention you here.
Here's one example of a new magazine article I just added, thanks to Joe Petrollese's amazing scans. Read it here.
Thanks again, everybody!

Streisand in NY Times
This full-page ad for Teachers College Columbia University on page 65 of the Dec. 29 New York Times Magazine features the Emanuel and Barbra Streisand Endowed Scholarship Fund. Thanks to Tessie Patterson for scanning it so all can see!
Barbra at Cedars-Sinai
The Winter 2013-14 issue of Catalyst (a publication mailed to donors, philanthropists, and friends who support Cedars-Sinai’s medical research and programs) features a photo of a proud Streisand standing in front of the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center. Last June, the Cedars-Sinai Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion formally opened its doors.

Happy New Year!
I'm still looking for your rare scans, photos, clippings, industry ads, etc. of Barbra Streisand.
If you've ever thought about sending me something and never got around to it ...... let's do it now!
If you know it's “rare” and you'd like to share it with this site (and, therefore, thousands of Streisand fans around the world), please email me at: email@example.com. I'm looking for private collection stuff—not the usual photos or materials one finds by using Google (and I'm an expert Googler, LOL.)
Also: I'm very interested in any 1960s images or clippings or from any of Streisand's live shows.
I'm happy to give you credit on whatever page I end up posting your material on (or if you want to remain anonymous).
Thank you in advance ... and have a fantastic 2014!
