This film captures scenes of the residents, schoolchildren, and local businesses of Nacogdoches, Texas in 1938. The film was likely made by an itinerant filmmaker -- professional filmmakers who visited towns across the country, spending several days in each town recording scenes of daily life that focused primarily on the residents, for whom the film was typically shown at the local theater. This particular film was discovered by retired Nacogdoches High School Assistant Principal Erwin DuBose during a major clean-up of the high school in 1960s. The film reel was found in the school attic, outside of its can, labeled “Nacogdoches 1938.” Mr. DuBose never learned the origin of the film, but held onto the film throughout the years. In 2014, Mr. DuBose and the town of Nacogdoches finally saw this rare piece of Nacogdoches history after its digitization -- a glimpse of their town more than 75 years ago. See shop owners, tap dancers, twirlers, service station attendees, druggists, and a tiny boy on a tiny pony in “Nacogdoches 1938!”
