Duck…and Cover!

I know I’ve talked about my love for the Internet Archive before, and I think I’ve also discussed my interest in the ephemeral films hosted there and elsewhere. For a bit of background… One of the major collectors of ephemeral films, Rick Prelinger, made many of them availible for free on the archive. I’ve been offering a service to a local history teacher who first introduced me to these films several years ago where I download the films and record them in DVD video format for him to show to his classes. Sometime last year another collector, Skip Elsheimer, made some of his collection availible on the Archive as well. As I was working on a conversion project today I ran into the CONELRAD: All Things Atomic site which also has some great resources including a list of Civil Defense shorts and the CONELRAD 100 list of great atomic films.
