Summary
The Samuel Horovitz Collection consists of 148 16 mm. film reels documenting primarily Horovitz’s worldwide lecture tours connected with his legal profession. In each of the countries he visited around the world, Horovitz filmed local culture (traditional dance, market squares, school children) and crafts, native people, scenery and flowers, museums, historic sites, and tourist attractions. Footage associated with well-known people or events includes Eleanor Roosevelt speaking at a banquet, the Henry Cabot Lodge political campaign, the Massachusetts Worker’s Compensation Committee, and Sonja Henie skating at Boston Garden. Coverage of family recreation includes the Columbia Yacht Club in South Boston, MA, and boats with family and friends on board in Massachusetts harbors; one vessel purchased from the Owens Yacht Co., in Baltimore, MD, is shown at the boatyard before coming to Massachusetts. Horovitz recorded many closeups (head and shoulder shots) of family members and associates including members of his synagogue, Temple Emanuel (Newton, MA), and portraits of legal and academic colleagues from the Massachusetts bar and Howard University in Washington, DC. Four commercial reels in the Collection include a Pathe newsreel, Japanese cartoons and war history, and an automotive film made in 1937.
