Irene Flatters Me:
<<     I have visited the NFPF Web site and I have learned
         a little more about the administation of the effort
         ...EXCEPT THE FOLLOWING:    >>
                            [seven questions snipped]
Thanks for the compliment, Irene!  While it's true that I know a
good bit about film preservation, you may be disappointed to
learn that I don't know everything.  Therefore, I'm sure you will
agree with me that your questions can more fruitfully be directed
to the following people:
Mr. Eric Schwartz, Acting Executive Director,
National Film Preservation Foundation
Smith and Metalitz, L.L.P.
1747 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Twelfth Floor
Washington, D.C.  20006

Mr. Steve Leggett, Library of Congress,
Motion Picture, Broadcasting, and Recorded Sound Division
101 Independence Avenue, S.E.
Washington, D.C.  20540-1610

When you contact Mr. Leggett, I am sure you will want to ask
for a copy of the LOC's national film preservation plan,
_Redefining Film Preservation: A National Plan_, inasmuch as
I know you will agree with me that, in matters of research, it is
always best to consult primary rather than secondary authorities,
whenever possible.
Hope this helps,
