The Dr. and Mrs. Cameron Rae Collection contains eight reels of amateur 16 mm. film and one commercial 16 mm. film print. The home movies, shot between 1939 and 1969, capture the Raes and their extended family and friends at homes in Maine and on travels throughout New England and Canada. Of particular interest are scenes of a summer clambake; a festive children's boat parade; and the Massachusetts Department of Fisheries and Game stocking trout in 1940. Many reels contain scenic views of the Maine coast, particularly at sunset.
