Archival News Footage from Temple U.’s Libraries
Temple University Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center presents selections from the Urban Archives collection. Footage spans the late 1940s through early 1980s and highlights the last year of preservation work, research requests, and digitization as part of our Civil Rights in a Northern City web portal. Selections are a mix of unedited news footage and produced public affairs documentaries that offer glimpses of both exceptional and everyday moments in the Philadelphia region’s history.
Temple University Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center holds rare and archival materials documenting the history of the university and the region. We share the content to stimulate, enrich, and support research, teaching, and learning and to engage with the larger community of scholars and the general public. Established in 1967, our Urban Archives documents the development of an urban region through a wide variety of organization records including local businesses such as the Pennsylvania Railroad Company and nonprofits and community organizations including the Friends Neighborhood Guild and the Housing Association of Delaware Valley. The millions of clippings and images from the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and Daily News as well as scores of other images collections provide a comprehensive view of life in our region. Here we feature our extensive holdings of local TV newsreel footage from KYW and WPVI which add to our rich record of the social, economic, political, cultural, civic, and physical development of Philadelphia.
The Cinedelphia Film Festival is a Philly-centric celebration of Philly film running from April 4-27, 2013.
