38 items
Scope and content:

The Films series is arranged in seven roughly chronological subseries, and consists of 38 16mm films. The series has two primary areas of focus, with 12 of the films coming from trips Crawford took to his vacation home in Cat Cay, Bahamas, and 19 of the films produced from a safari Crawford, along with Gordon and Vernon Stouffer, sponsored in 1955, which resulted in the collection of a number of specimens for the Cleveland Zoo. Other Crawford travel represented in the collection includes trips to Europe in 1936 and 1939, a trip around the world in 1959, a cruise from Cleveland to Fiji in 1958, a trip to Russia in 1959, a trip to the Middle East and Greece in 1961, and trips to his other homes in Vermont and Massachusetts.
