Dear Friends:

I would like to assemble a short list of disasters (and near-disasters) that
have befallen multimedia archives. Any help building a short list would be
much appreciated. To get us started:  

MGM and Atlantic labels lost holdings in a fire
In 1996 a movie lot fire almost demolished the MCA audio archive
RCA bulldozed a warehouse in Camden, NJ in the 1960s, with master recordings
and other materials still inside

(These examples from: "Arts, Inc.: How Greed and Neglect Have Destroyed Our
Cultural Rights" by Bill Ivey

Destruction of Odeon masters at the end of WWII.

Thanks in advance,

Joel
