Lilian Gish et al

Screen Shot 2014-09-08 at 3.52.21 PMThanks to the help of a Twitter connection after a inquiry Tweet relating to the papers of the cast of The Birth of a Nation, I am now aware of the whereabouts of the papers of Ms. Lilian Gish: at the New York Public Library. This once again confirms (as if I needed any confirmation) that social media are wonderful tools for researchers. Ask a question, broadcast it to the world, get an immediate answer. I love it. So my Internet friends, should you know the locations of any other collections pertaining to the cast and crew of this most controversial silent film I would love the tip off.

Many thanks,
