Purchase of Film Preservation Furniture and Supplies

The purchase of storage furniture and supplies to rehouse 758 reels of amateur motion picture film that document the history of Chicago and the Midwest and include documentaries, travelogues, and interviews from 1903 to 1990. The collection as a whole comprises 9,900 films, among them amateur, industrial, avant garde, and educational films. Included are films of the Chicago Railroad Fair of 1948-49; sports activities at Soldiers Field in the mid-1930s; and early 20th-century agriculture in the Midwest.

This Project advances proper archival housing of CFA's growing film collections as recommended in a 2007 Facilities and Collections Assessment (also funded by a NEH PAG). This grant will provide funding for archival shelving and for archival 8mm containers.
