William O’Farrell Fellowship
The William O’Farrell Fellowship is awarded each year to an individual engaged in research in NHF collections that results in a publication, production, or presentation based on moving image history and culture. The award honors the legacy of Canadian film archivist William O’Farrell, an advocate for amateur and nontheatrical film collections. Bill was a valued supporter of NHF and an unparalleled mentor and friend.
    In 2010, the first year the Fellowship was awarded, the recipient was Caitlin McGrath, Ph.D., from the University of Chicago, who conducted research at NHF on the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Her research used films from 15 NHF collections.
    The 2011 winner of the Fellowship is Walter Forsberg, a Research Fellow in New York University’s Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program. His project will focus on the Donald C. Brown Jr. Collection of 35mm drive-in and theatrical trailers from over a dozen cinemas in New England and West Virginia.
