North Carolina State Archives Awarded Grants to Preserve Films

North Carolina State Archives Awarded Grants to Preserve Films

RALEIGH, NC July 28, 2014 – Few media formats have the power to transport a person to another reality or immerse one in a story as thoroughly as motion picture film. Captured on film, the past comes alive. The State Archives of North Carolina preserves hundreds of motion picture films, many of which document historic events, people and places.   Recently, the State Archives received a grant from The National Film Preservation Foundation to preserve two additional films in its collection, “The North Carolina State Fair” (ca. 1974), a daylong glimpse of the Raleigh-based event, including appearances by Bob Hope; and “Scott for Lieutenant Governor” (circa 1965), and a campaign ad for Robert W.

A Pirate’s Exile: Bussing across the U.S.A.

San Diego, CA, July 27th, 2014-Crossing the country on a bus is something everyone should try to do more often. It’s a reasonably affordable way to actually see things. I rode the Greyhound from Wilmington, NC to Los Angeles, CA with a slight layover for Bonnaroo and a little Salem, VA vacation. You read about the festival previously and leaving the farm in Coffee County and the campsite was a pretty bittersweet moment for me. It was so much fun, you just wanted to go back and start over. Unfortunately, if you stick around after the music stops, it’s time to clean. I briefly considered trying to hitch a ride to LA or Denver from the festival but jumped into […]
