Giant cassette player

Submitted by David

Last week NHF received an equipment donation from the Brooklin Keeping Society.  One was very useful, namely an 8mm projector, but one with lots of bells and whistles (8mm, Super8, and sound too).  An extra projector like this will be especially useful when we celebrate International Home Movie Day at the Maine Historical Society on October 16, 2010. (We'll give you specifics as the day approaches, but Home Movie Day provides a chance for everyone to bring in their old home movies and get an assessment of their condition and perhaps even screen a couple of reels.)

Maine Community Foundation grant received

Submitted by Jessica

NHF is pleased to announce that we have received a grant from the Maine Community Foundation to create three new compilations from our collections.  This is a great opportunity to show the rich heritage of the region that is in the vaults.  These compilations will include sustainable agriculture, a glimpse of three Maine communities over time, and a look at our maritime heritage on film.
