We are excited to announce that our fifth and sixth groups of audiovisual materials digitized through our participation in the California Audiovisual Preservation Project (CAVPP) are now online at the Internet Archive. The moving image recordings include footage of: several McClellan Air Force Base events which were related to the community lobbying effort to keep the base in Sacramento off the federal base closure list in 1993; Greenville (Plumas County, Calif) High School activities in 1936; and a sugar beet harvester.
