Multi-media web site with FRANK CAPRA panel.

Back in 1999, the American Historical Association
met in Washington, DC.  The FILM & HISTORY
panel for that meeting focused on FRANK CAPRA
and his legacy.

Chairing the FILM & HISTORY session was
Robert Toplin.  Presenters were Lawrence Levine,
the distinguished American studies expert and
Dan T. Carter, an author with expertise in
Southern politics.    Toplin provided an excellent
introduction and overview followed by the two
other members of the panel.

The  Journal of Multi-Media History has these
talks as part of a section entitled FRANK CAPRA'S
AMERICA.

This event was sponsored by Film & History with
many thanks to the participants and to Gerald Zahavi
and Susan McCormick of The Journal of Multi-Media
History--who have done a marvelous job of  multi-media
packaging the panel with pictures, text, and sound.

(Our panel for Boston in 2001 will focus on CNN's
COLD WAR series:  History or Ideology?)
