Looking Back at Old Footage of WV

The West Virginia Archives and History Library is dipping into its collection and show old footage of important events at a public event.

The state Division of Culture and History showing will be at the Culture Center on the Capitol grounds.

Audio-visual archivist Richard Fauss will show scenes from the 1932 documentary "Charleston, Beautiful on the Kanawha" and footage of Robert F. Kennedy from the 1968 presidential campaign in West Virginia.

Fauss will also offer advice about basic care of old home movies and problems with aging videotape.

The division says the viewing is planned for June 7, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Culture Center's archive library in Charleston.
