John Vincent Tillman Collection

Film Collection | Accession Number: 2013.42.8
Collection Summary
John Vincent Tillman was on a fellowship at the University of Munich studying German opera between October 1935 and summer 1936. Tillman recorded his travels across Germany (some via motorcycle), from small towns in the Alps to Berlin, Dresden, and Munich, on 16mm film. He filmed the 1935 harvest festival in Bückeburg, a propaganda event similar to the Nuremberg rallies but catering to rural communities. He also kept a travel diary which was donated along with the film.
