News of the Tuskegee University Archives

The archives has just received notification of a very important donation. Thanks to the donation from Ms. Natalie Silverman, whose great-grandfather Ira Greene was the producer of a 1940 biopic of George Washington Carver (imdb link here). The collection includes a few pieces of memorabilia from the film, including the first reel of the film itself, and the original script. Much of the content of the film is set and filmed at Tuskegee.
