Custodial History
Bob Koester acquired the films from a camera collecter who lived on Chicago's northside. The collector had placed an ad for the sale of films, records, cameras and odds and ends. Koester is unable to recall this man's name, the forum or publication from which his ad was placed. Koester purchased only this collection of Northwestern University football games.
