The James Alan Cox Foundation
Donates Cameras to
Huntington High School, Huntington, New York


Pam Piffard, the photography teacher at Huntington High School, receives one of her new cameras, purchased by The James Alan Cox Foundation, from Len Totora of L&L Camera.

While Jimmy loved Arizona and lived there for almost 17 years, he was also a proud New Yorker and loved growing up in Huntington, Long Island. The Foundation was therefore happy to help the photography teachers and students of Jim's high school, Huntington High, and purchased two new cameras for their program. The Foundation, with the help of Len Totora of L&L Camera, Huntington, donated a Canon XSi Digital camera and a Canon Elan 7N film camera.

Huntington High School students show off one of their new cameras.

Through a friend of the family, the Foundation also gave the high school three gently used cameras: a Canon EOS Elan II 35 mm camera with lenses; a Minolta Hi-Matic 35 mm camera; and a Polaroid Automatic 250 Land camera. Many thanks to Karen and Larry Turner for this wonderful donation.

"Our students are very honored to be able to use these wonderful cameras in memory of James Cox. They are very taken with his story and feel as if they somehow are walking in his footsteps as they use these cameras."

Joan Fretz, Director of Fine and Performing Arts at the Huntington Union Free School District
The new digital camera, purchased by the Foundation, has a possible 30 second shutter exposure. With such a long exposure, the students were able to draw with light, using a flashlight to create illumination.
