A day with John Burroughs
Scope and Contents
John Burroughs (1837-1921), author and naturalist, is filmed going about his daily routine at his home, Woodchuck Lodge, in the Catskill Mountains. This film is unique for the time as it was filmed in color; it is the earliest color film in the collection. It was made using a process called "prizma" color, in which both sides of the positive film were coated with emulsion; one side was dyed blue and green, the other side red and yellow. When projected together the image is in natural color tones.
