Collection contains [William Rand, Sr.--home movies] filmed at the family home in Massachusetts, in various locations in Maine and New Hampshire, New York, and northeastern Canada.

One reel includes footage of the 1932 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid showing ski jumping, bobsled, hockey, and ice boating. Collection also contains several commercial shorts with cartoons, Keystone and Charlie Chaplin comedies, and news, including "End of World War II."
