RTPI Awarded Grant to Digitize 1959 Film Wild Europe
The Roger Tory Peterson Institute currently houses more than 200,000 linear feet of 16mm film Peterson produced in the 1950s and 1960s during his travels. Through grants from the National Film Preservation Foundation, RTPI has been able to create digital copies of Roger Tory Peterson’s documentary films Wild America (1953), Wild Africa (1972), Wild Eden (1967), and Flamingos on Four Continents (1958). The newest grant will allow digitization for Wild Europe (1959). You can read the whole article here.
