Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio Awarded Film Restoration Grant

LENOX, Mass. — Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio has been awarded a $9,210 grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation to preserve part of its collection of 16mm films taken by George L.K. Morris in the 1930s. 
 
The Foundation's grants support preservation of rare films such as silent films and films of sites receiving little media coverage. This current grant funds preservation of three films taken by Morris during a 1934 trip to the Far East during which he visited China, Japan, Cambodia, Indonesia, Hawaii, India, Korea, and Philippines capturing on film colonial, pre-World War II life and historical and culturally significant sites. 
 
These 1934 films make up almost half of those in the FMH&S collection. These three films, documenting Hong Kong, Shanghai, Suzhou, Mount Abu, and Udaipur are the final Far East films to be preserved.
 
"Over the past five years, FMH&S has preserved the oldest portions of its film collection of thirty-eight 16mm films," Director Kinney Frelinghuysen said. "Thanks to a number of generous grants from the National Film Preservation Foundation, we have created  film-film copies  of the most at-risk films from this important archive to share with the public both online and in several exhibitions presented at the museum."
