The Dana Brown Collection

13 Jul

As of July 2012, approximately one million feet of film from the Dana Brown Collection have been rehoused, tested for vinegar syndrome, and are resting comfortably in our climate/humidity controlled vault. In addition to film, the Dana Brown Collection contains original audio material, scripts, and correspondence. Researchers will find a rich source of material in this collection about the cultural history of the mid-to-late twentieth century as well as an environmental record of natural areas throughout Africa and Asia.

An exhibit introducing the recently acquired Dana Brown Collection is now on view at the Film and Media Archive. Some images from the collection can be seen below. The Archive is open Monday – Friday, 8:30 – 5:00. For more information, please contact us.
