Series 12: Documentary Film Materials , 1985-2004
3.5 Linear feet
Box 28-32

Found here are planning documents, research material, and video footage for a documentary about the life and work of Hughie Lee-Smith, produced by New Deal Films, Inc. The documentary was never completed, and all material was returned to Patricia Lee-Smith in 2004. Recordings consist of three sample reel videocassettes as well as 24 master videocassettes (and various duplicate videocassettes) containing footage recorded by New Deal Films for the documentary. Footage includes interviews with artists and art historians, gallery events, and images of Lee-Smith's paintings. A few interviews were also recorded on sound cassette. Researchers should note that one file of audiotape transcripts included in this series are copies of transcripts found in Series 12: Interviews, and not transcripts of interviews conducted for this documentary.
Research and planning files are arranged before recordings. Master recordings are filed with the duplicate copies.
