Language Of Materials
Jeremy Simon, Beryl Simon's grandson approached the CFA to donate the collection. His parents, Tim and Pippa Simon had initially visited CFA in 2013 to talk about the films and gave a DVD copy of them to be included in the archive. The original films then came into Jeremy's possession, and he subsequently donated them to CFA in 2019.
The films are open to on-site access. While the reels are a bit dry and brittle, there is no specific restriction set on handling them (although, they should not be loaned out for projection).
Chicago Film Archives holds the copyright for the films created by Beryl Simon.
