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.
