LIBRARY & ARCHIVES - Movie Film Collection
  Recently awarded an Archives and Records Management grant funded by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission the York County Heritage Trust digitally transferred and archival stored thirty-five reels of silent 16mm film. Totally over 13,000 feet this film collection focuses on events and gatherings in York County ranging from 1923 to 1960. The majority of this collection was filmed and shown by a York County couple, Charles Noss and his wife Carrye. In addition to the Noss films, there were seven reels totaling over 2,700 feet that documented York City in 1941. The final 800 feet of film converted were promotional films by George Z. Byler for the Thompson Business College. They captured 1940 business and classroom scenes for both the York and Harrisburg area. This grant also provided for a new computer in the Library & Archives reading room to provide public access.
