Language Of Materials
In 2008, Howard Prouty purchased these 8mm home movies at a garage sale in Los Angeles, California (6101 Del Valle Dr.) and soon after donated them to the Academy Film Archive (AFA). The AFA in turn donated the films to CFA when they realized the films originated in the Midwest.
This collection is open to on-site access. Appointments must be made with Chicago Film Archives. Due to the fragile nature of the films, only video copies will be provided for on-site viewing.
