Additions to the National Film Registry

Antonio Fuentes

Rare Films from TAMU-CC Archives Receive National Recognition

Motion picture films from the Antonio Rodriguez Fuentes and Josefina Barrera Fuentes Family Papers have been named to the National Film Registry. The films, which were preserved through a 2015 partnership with the Texas Archive of the Moving Image (TAMI), are among the 25 American films deemed "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant.

Antonio Rodríguez Fuentes (1895-1988) and Josefina Barrera Fuentes (1898-1993) were longtime Corpus Christi residents who ranked among the most involved individuals in early local Mexican American community organizations. Mr. Fuentes was an avid amateur photographer.

The films named to the registry were shot with a French-made Pathex camera on 9.5mm film, a rare film format popular for a short time in the early 20th century, primarily in Europe. They can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbn3S-_nftnSJ_2E77EPgrw. More information about the papers is available at http://library.tamucc.edu/dept/special/Fuentes.html

Searching has Changed!

We’ve changed the search platform used in a Quick Search. The changes will be most obvious in the results list and the Journals list. This will offer better search results and improve linking to library content. Take a look around and see what you think!

If you have questions or if you need any assistance, please reach out to the Ask Us Desk or stop by and see a librarian.

Just can’t handle the new look? The old way of searching will be available through June 30th. You can search here until then: http://bit.ly/2sHoLqM
