I took Oregon Movies, A to Z down today.

Yesterday I attended the mini-ceremony welcoming James Blue’s papers and films to the University of Oregon’s Knight Library.

When I started Oregon Movies, A to Z,  I was alarmed that no one was paying attention to Oregon’s film history. I no longer have that feeling. James Fox, the head of Special Collections at Knight Library, has collected the papers of three Oregonians who made significant contributions to American  film history:  James Ivory, Ken Kesey and James Blue. The Cinema Studies department faculty were present and fully engaged in celebrating the acquisition of James Blue’s papers and films.

Oregon Movies, A to Z is no longer needed.

I will continue advocating for support for Oregon film history scholarship.  I want to see one of the Oregon University System schools choose to develop a specialty in animation studies, including animation history, and for that school to begin a scholarly collection of books on that subject. It is not possible today to research Oregon’s animation history with the teachers and the library resources we currently possess. I am interested in changing this.

If we have world class artists, we should have world class scholars.

Speaking of which, thank you to the people who wrote in with information which helped deepen my understanding of Oregon film history!

    End of an era indeed. We can only hope all this information will be available in book form so you can earn some back for all the effort you’ve put into Oregon film.

    I feel as if the equivalent of the Alexandria Library (vis a vis Oregon Film History) just burned to the ground! Please Anne, write that book! We need your research! Mary Erickson and I will help. And thank you for all of your incredible work over the years on this site.
