Library of Congress acquires Yellow Cat archive.
In March 2013 The Library of Congress acquired the “Michael Ford Mississippi Collection.” The collection consists of 16,ooo feet of 16mm film, 10.5 hours of recordings of interviews and music, and 1000+ still photographs made during the production of HOMEPLACE in 1972-73. The material will be used in a 40 year retrospective documentary presently in production. The material to be gathered on the 3 week shoot this spring will be added the Library’s holdings at a later date.
The archive will be housed in the same group as the Alan Lomax and Pete Seeger collection. For more information on the documentary project drop us a line.
