Burton Holmes is one of the lesser-known figures in film history, yet he did much to further the medium of motion pictures by traveling the world, filming far-flung cultures and giving immensely popular lectures on his experiences abroad.

Patrick Loughney, Ph.D. touches on Mr. Holmes' contribution to the world of motion pictures and discusses efforts to preserve a collection of his work.  Dr. Loughney is the Curator of Motion Pictures at the International Museum of Photography and Film at the George Eastman House as well as Director of The L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation.
