It would be worthwhile to contact the Moving Image and Sound Research Room
at the National Archives and Records Administration (email: [log in to unmask]),
because thousands of record items from the National Park Service have been
accessioned over the years. The Park Service also maintains its own
archival collections at many individual Parks, if you haven't already been
in contact with them, you should!
An independent archival professional specializing in still photography,
moving images and recorded sound.
