Newsreel, part 2.

I mentioned earlier in the week in this post http://wp.me/s2x5bF-newsreel, that there was such a newsreel but I had no idea where that would be.  With the fantastic assistance of Brian Sargent, Fox Account Executive, ITN Source; Greg Wilsbacher, Curator, Newsfilm Collections, Moving Image Research Collections, University of South Carolina; Cherrie Brown, Administrative Assistant, Newsfilm Collections, Moving Image Research Collections, University of South Carolina; and Peter Bregman, Director of Archives at Fox Movietone News; and George Willeman, Nitrate Film Vault Manager at the Library of Congress, the actual original film has been located and will be re-digitized in order to make it more accessible.

The released newsreel was filmed by C. J. Kaho who operated out of Ft. Worth.  The  material was the lead story in Volume 2 Issue 71 of Fox News (released, Wed. June 8, 1921).   Fox News began regular release in October 1919 and officially ceased publication in the spring of 1930.
