Valorie Yaros
SAG-AFTRA Historian and Archivist

Valerie Yaros has been the Historian and Archivist since 1996 for Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA). She and her work were profiled in the Los Angeles Times Magazine of October 29, 2000 (Attachment 1) and the Japanese magazine August of March 2011. Since the end of 2002, she has been writing the SAGAFTRA member magazine “Snapshot” feature, as well as many articles. Since 2005 she has been a representative for SAG-AFTRA (and, previously Screen Actors Guild 2005-2012) on the National Film Preservation Board, a 44-member public advisory group to the Librarian of Congress.

Few know of the critical role played by courageous and committed Actor-Members of the early BUSC in the founding years of the Screen Actors Guild in the early 1930s. These include

Nigel Bruce, Halliwell Hobbes, Claude King, Herbert Marshall, Victor McLaglen, Alan Mowbray, Reginald Owen, Ivan Simpson and C. Aubrey Smith.  Many joint BUSC/S.A.G. members were also active in The Masquers and the Hollywood Cricket Club.  King, MowbraySimpson and Smith were members of that original core group of 21 Guild founders comprising its first board of directors. This BUSC presentation will feature photographs, stories and letters from the archives of SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) and conclude with a special tribute to Major Claude King - first BUSC president.

This July Mess Night will be special for BUSC Members and Guests. Seldom do we have the opportunity to reflect on the historical roots of our Club. Come meet Ms. Yaros, enjoy her expert presentation and continue celebrating our Club’s Camaraderie.
