      The collection consists of the [Nowell-Clark--home movies], 25 reels of silent 16 mm film, totally approximately 6825 feet. The home movies were filmed by Annie Wood Nowell and her son-in-law Richard Clark. The majority of Annie Wood Nowell's films cover family and local historical events, as well as some trick photography and trips to Maine, New Hampshire, and a tuberculosis sanitarium in Colorado. Richard J. Clark continued the family tradition of filming family holidays, vacations, and events.
      The primary author of the collection is Annie Wood Nowell (1881-1955). Born in Arlington, Massachusetts, she spent most of her life in Winchester and Duxbury, Massachusetts, and graduated from Vassar College, where she majored in Biology. Her interests included botany, needlepoint, and photography, and after the birth of her first daughter in 1902 she became thoroughly enamored with picture-taking and 16mm movies. The Clark portion of the collection was filmed by Annie Nowell’s son-in-law, Richard J. Clark (1906-1990), who was a physician in Winchester, Massachusetts.
