Carroll Burton Feindel
Fonds · 1940 - 1960

Consists of 14 colour films, 4 black and white films, and 1 in both for a total of 19 films copied onto 3 film reels. Most of the films were made by Carroll Feindel and reflect his life and interests. The bulk of his work is of the "home movies" or "travelogue" genre, consisting of amateur footage depicting his family, the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) bases to which he was posted, and his family excursions and vacations off the bases. The films document military and family life in the 1940s and 1950s, and provide a view of the places he visited in Newfoundland-and-Labrador and Nova Scotia during this time. In particular, one of the "Labrador" films (Vc 1083) captures video of Naskapi First Nation members returning from a seal hunt, and others woodworking and drying skins (1949). There is also footage of the family taking a boat trip up the Hamilton River which disappeared after opening of Churchill Falls hydroelectric project in 1974. The cinematography is generally very good. The fonds also includes 3 documentary works made by others which Mr. Feindel collected and preserved.
