    John Vincent Tillman (1907-1956) was on a fellowship at the University of Munich studying German opera between October 1935 and the summer of 1936. Tillman recorded his travels across Germany (some via motorcycle), from small towns in the Alps to Berlin, Dresden, and Munich, on 16mm film and kept a diary. He later received a doctorate from the University of Chicago and chaired the German department of St. Louis University.
