Language Of Materials
The films in the Kelly Collection were previously stored in Kelly's former home in Eagle River, WI. After his death in 1950, the house and its contents were sold to the Murphy family of the Murphy Construction Company (now MCC, Inc.). The family moved the films to climate-controlled storage in the mid-1970s. In 2018, the Murphys sold the house and brought the films to CFA.
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.
CFA does not own copyrights to the films in this collection.
