Speaker Biography: The Library of Congress is the major repository for the films of Mary Pickford, and Christel Schmidt is the leading expert on Pickford's films. Schmidt is a film historian who co-edited "Silent Movies: The Birth of Film and the Triumph of Movie Culture" in 2007, and she has received two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Mary Pickford Foundation and Women Film Pioneers have both made use of her work.
