Foreword 



THIS CATALOG lists and describes more than 3,000 films 
' of the United States Government which are available for 
public use within the United States. While the U. S. Office of 
Education has prepared this catalog primarily for the use of 
schools and colleges, its value to all users and potential users 
of U. S. Government films is clearly evident. That value is 
particularly important today in the national defense programs. 
To the U. S. Office of Education and to the various departments 
and establishments which, in response to the Bureau of the 
Budget Circular A-21, furnished the information upon which 
this catalog is based, I wish to express my sincere appreciation.

The Catalog 



background and purpose 

The United States Office of Education, as part of its responsibility to furnish 
American schools and colleges with information about the educational 
materials and services of the Federal Government, initiated in the fall of 
1949 a project calling for the periodic compilation of information about 
the films of U. S. Government agencies and the subsequent publication of 
a catalog, with supplements and revisions as needed, of those films which 
are available for public use in the United States 1 . 

In February 1950 the Bureau of the Budget, by direction of the President, 
issued a circular to the heads of all executive departments and establish- 
ments of the Federal Government calling their attention to the preparation 
of such a catalog and requesting that certain basic information about their 
films be furnished to the Office of Education. In its circular, the Bureau of 
the Budget stressed the following values of a catalog of U. S. Government 
films: 

"It is anticipated (a) that the information so compiled and the catalog, with 
supplements and revisions as needed, will be helpful not only to educational 
institutions, other community organizations, and the general public but also 
to all departments and establishments of the Government; (b) that it will 
facilitate and expedite the answering of inquiries addressed to the Govern- 
ment concerning the existence and availability of Government films; and 
(c) that it will provide all departments and establishments with a central 
information source on the existence of Government films." 

scope of the catalog 

In the preparation of this catalog, four basic criteria have been used in 
defining its scope that is, in defining a U. S. Government film. In the first 
place, "U. S. Government" has been interpreted to include all agencies of 
the executive, judicial, and legislative branches of the Federal Government 
(including wholly owned Government corporations). But not included in 
this catalog are films of quasi-official agencies such as the American Red 
Cross; of international agencies such as the Pan American Union and the 
United Nations; or of State and local governments. 

1 Three similar catalogs have been published previously: Office of Education, Directory of U.S. Government 
Films, 1940; Office of Education, U.S. Government Motion Pictures and Filmstrips, 1945; and Library of Con- 
gress, Guide to United States Government Motion Pictures, 1947. All are now out of print.

U. S. GOVERNMENT FILMS 

Second, the word "films," as used in this catalog, includes motion pictures, 
filmstrips, and sets of slides. 

A third criterion, more difficult of interpretation than the previous two 
criteria, rektes to the extent of ownership and sponsorship of a film by an 
agency of the Federal Government. In this catalog, "U. S. Government 
films" have been defined as those films which are (a) the property of the 
Federal Government, including negative and reproduction rights; or which, 
if not owned by the Government, are (b) presented officially by the Govern- 
ment and to which the Government has major distribution rights. Not 
included in this catalog are films, produced by non-Government sources, 
copies of which may have been acquired by and are being distributed by 
a particular Government agency, but to which the Government's equity and 
sponsorship extend only to these copies. 

availability for public use 

This catalog includes all U. S. Government films as defined by the three 
above-mentioned criteria which are available for public use in the United 
States. This fourth criterion is also difficult of interpretation, but in this 
catalog it has been defined as follows: If prints (copies) of a film can be 
purchased and used by the public in the United States, that film has been 
considered available. If prints of a film cannot be purchased, however, a 
film has been considered available only if there are sufficient prints in 
circulation to take care of public requests for the film. Admittedly, this 
number of "sufficient prints" is variable, depending upon the nature of the 
subject matter and the probable size of the audience for a particular film. 
Only those films which, the authors believe, are actually available and 
reasonably accessible for public use in the United States have been included 
in this catalog. It should be noted here that specific instructions have been 
given for borrowing, renting, and purchasing each of the 3,434 films 
included. 

These, then, are the four criteria used in the selection of the U. S. Govern- 
ment films included in this catalog. Only those films which met these 
criteria have been included. Not included in this catalog are films which 
have been withdrawn because of obsolescence or other reasons ; films which 
are used solely as working tools by a Government agency; films which 
consist of unedited footage or "stock shots"; and films whose public use 
in the United States is prohibited for security reasons, legal restrictions, 
or policy considerations. 

preparation of the catalog 

In accordance with the provisions of the Bureau of the Budget circular, 
referred to above, each agency of the Government provided the Office of 
Education with information about its films; and to all such agencies, the 



THE CATALOG 

Office of Education hereby expresses its appreciation for their cooperation 
and assistance. From such information, which was checked and cross-checked 
against all available reference materials, the Office of Education prepared 
descriptions and summaries of the films, and then re-checked such descrip- 
tive data with each of the various agencies whose films are included in this 
catalog. 

This is, of course, an overly simplified explanation of the preparation of 
this catalog. Many additional steps were taken in the compilation of the 
information, in the checking of the accuracy and authenticity of such 
information, and in the cataloging process itself. Such steps need not be 
described they can be inferred except to say that the Office of Education 
has, insofar as possible, made sure that the catalog is an accurate and 
complete listing as of April 1, 1951 of every U. S. Government motion 
picture, filmstrip, and set of slides available for public educational use 
within the United States. 



V. S. Government Films 

Motion Pictures 

ALL of the motion pictures listed and described in this catalog are 16mm 
films. Unless otherwise indicated they are sound and black-and-white films; 
-color and/or silent films are so identified. 

Each motion picture is described as follows: (a) the title of the film; (b) 
the name of the producing agency or agencies and the date of production; 
(c) the series title if the film is part of a series; (d) a descriptive summary 
of the content of the film; (e) references to related films; and (f) the order 
number of the film if it has such a number, its running time in minutes, 
and an identification of color and silent films. 

Following these descriptive data are several numbers in bold-face type. 
These code numbers refer to specific instructions for obtaining Government 
films which are explained on pages 306-329 of this catalog. To learn how to 
obtain the first film listed below, for example, turn to pages 308 and 329 
where, under code numbers 11 and 41, directions are given for borrowing

Haw and Where to Obtain U. S. Government Films 

16mm Film Libraries 

32 

BORROW or rent the films coded 32 from the 16mm film libraries listed 
below. Individually none of these libraries has all of the films of the U. S. 
Government but they do have a sizable number of such films which they 
lend or rent within the United States. Some of these libraries are official 
depositories of the films of individual agencies such as the Department of 
Agriculture and the Bureau of Mines. Others have purchased prints of 
various Government films which they lend or rent. Both depository and 
nondepository libraries are included in the following list; they have not 
been differentiated. 

This is not an exhaustive list of 16mm film libraries handling U. S. Govern- 
ment films. Instead it is a selective list of those libraries (a) which reported 
having a number of such films, (b) which assented to their listing in this 
catalog, and (c) which agreed to cooperate with the United States Govern- 
ment in furthering the distribution of Government films. 

For the convenience of users, these 16mm film libraries have been listed 
alphabetically by States and cities. The resources and services of each 
library have been described briefly in terms of the number and kind of 
current U. S. Government films (titles) in the library. In these annotations, 
because of space limitations, the names of agencies have been abbreviated 
into their alphabetical symbols, e.g., USD A for U. S. Department of Agri- 
culture or USN for U. S. Navy. Following this descriptive summary there 
is a succinct statement of the restrictions, if any, placed by a library upon 
its distribution of films. Catalog users should note and observe these restric- 
tions which are, in many cases, set by law. 

Because of their variability, local loan conditions and rental rates have not 
been specified. Film users can and should obtain such information from 
individual libraries.
