Mike Mashon, head of the Moving Image Section of the Library of Congress, toured the Library of Congress Packard Campus in Culpeper, Virginia, and talked about the “Paper Print Collection,” films from the earliest era of motion pictures produced between 1894 and 1912. Over 3,000 paper prints were created for copyright purposes, and have been preserved for over 100 years. These paper prints preserve a glimpse of American life in the late 19th and early 20th century. close
