The James Dimond Home Movie Collection

Donated to the Walker in 1989, these rare amateur home movies captured the life of the Dimond Family in Minnesota and Illinois through such footage as a double-decker bus ride through downtown Chicago and scenic views of Camden State Park and Minnehaha Falls in Minnesota. In 2004, the collection was preserved with the assistance of the National Film Preservation Foundation. 1927–1935, 9.5mm transferred to video, 17 minutes.


Preserved with funds from the National Film Preservation Foundation. Major support to preserve and digitize the Ruben/Bentson Film and Video Study Collection is generously provided by the Bentson Foundation.
