G. William Jones Film & Video Collection

The G. William Jones Film and Video Collection supports instruction and research in the Meadows School of the Arts, Southern Methodist University and the global moving image preservation and research community. The Collection’s primary purpose is to support education through the study, preservation and presentation of moving images. To this end, the Collection maintains moving images in a wide variety of formats, examples of related equipment, print materials associated with moving images, and a climate-controlled storage facility. Among the Collection’s moving image holdings are feature films, news film and video, animation classics, documentaries, television series and student films. Highlights include the Tyler, Texas, Black Film Collection; the Gene Autry Collection; the Belo News Film Collection; the Sulphur Springs Pre-Nickelodeon Films; and Alfred Hitchcock’s 1926 feature, “The Pleasure Garden.” 

Use of the Collection is by appointment only and subject to restrictions. Learn more about the Jones Film and Video Collection at the Hamon Arts Library website
