Prelinger Archives, Part 1 Founder Rick Prelinger talked about the Prelinger Archives in San Francisco, California, a collection of over 60,000 “ephemeral” (advertising, educational, industrial, and amateur) films. Prelinger began collecting the films in 1982 when the switch from film to video meant that many of these productions were being discarded. In 2002 the collection was aquired by the Library of Congress. This is the first part of a two-part series. close
