Microfilms, Audiotapes and Motion Picture Films [subseries]:
Most of the tapes and microfilms were obtained by CPP personnel while working on publications. Some of the information is marginally related to the rest of the collection.
On one audio tape Rose K. Goldsen, Director of the Cornell Methodology Project in Vicos, discusses the material accessioned by the Cornell Archives as the Vicos Collection. There is a transcript of an interview with William Stein, a former CPP researcher, discussing the same subject. The rest of the tapes are from a conference on Puerto Rican studies, held at Cornell in the early sixties.
There are microfilms of dissertations, records of Bolivian mining operations, and some unidentified material from Puerto Rico. The microfilms of the Bolivian mine records were used in ethnohistorical background research by CPP personnel. The dissertation microfilms are of studies done in Latin America. They were written between 1949 and 1972 (the 1972 dissertation was added by Deborah Wood) and include a wide variety of topics.
The motion picture films were added to the collection in 2004 and contain footage of the Vicosinos and Peru in general. All of the films have been digitized and researchers should use the digital copies not the original films. There is also a copy of the 1962 CBS film So That Men Are Free . This film was not digitized by Cornell because of copyright considerations, but it is available on-line from the University of Cambridge at
