Dispatch: March 2014

  • Albert Schwartz, who was among the American forces who liberated the Nordhausen concentration camp in World War II and later led efforts to end racial segregation, passed away in El Paso in March at the age of ninety-four. TAMI was lucky enough to digitize the home movies of Herman M. Schwartz, Albert’s brother, where Albert can be seen. 
  • TAMI's Madeline Moya led a lively presentation for the University of Texas Undergraduate Museum Studies Guild in March.  She discussed film acquisition and curating collections from digitized film materials. 

  • TAMI’s hilarious educational video, “Mission Possible: Bike Safety,” was featured on the blog for the new documentary Teenage.

TAMI's Top 5 videos from March were:
