Special Skills or Areas of Expertise or Research Interests

I am interested in 16mm film, espcially home movies from the 1920s and 1930s, and Kodachrome films of any era. My work includes film handling, inspection, repair, and conservation measures. I am available to inspect home movies in private collections and/or to accept donations of films of any kind, especially those related to Georgia and the Southeastern United States.
