Repository description (CRHP): The 9000 sq. ft. facility holds a range of film and audio related to the civil rights movement, including vintage newsreels (1956-1959) and documentary audio and video footage.
Repository description (extant): Welcome to MacDonald & Associates, an historical film archive of extraordinary scope. Come and view a Century of Film, a tour of all aspects of the Twentieth Century as preserved on motion pictures. We have it all -- the bizarre and mundane, the noble and infamous -- politics, medicine, sports, family life, travel, newsreels, animated cartoons, musical performance, war, popular culture, television, radio, advertising, etc., etc. -- indeed, the fullness of civilization in the age of the movie camera. If you seek to visualize aspects of the human experience, allow us to be of assistance.
MacDonald & Associates makes its film holdings available to the professional creative community. We do not sell to the general public. Instead, we serve the wide spectrum of media communicators -- from TV producers and documentary makers, to advertising agencies, museum exhibitors, and feature film directors. Be it a single stock shot or a collection of subject-specific films, MacDonald & Associates' footage helps you convey your ideas.
As well as our master materials on film, we maintain a Vintage Audio Archive. Spanning more than a century of recorded sound, our inventory consists of 40,000 hours of radio programs, speeches, interviews, and vintage musical performances. Our clients often find advantage in combining vintage sound recordings and historic film footage.
Repository Notes (CRHP): Company president is Dr. J. Fred MacDonald, Professor of History, Emeritus, at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago.
