    Trying to locate a travelogue called "Discover America"

    Diane Kimbrell Newbie

      I'm trying to locate a travelogue that played in movie theatres in 1967 - 68 entitled, "Discover America."  It was filmed by Kodak and affiliated with American Oil.  I have no idea where to look for this so any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

          Dear Ms. Kimbrell,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Moving Images Relating to U.S. Domestic and International Activities in the Records of the U.S. Information Agency (Record Group 306) that includes Discover America - 1967. For more information about this film, please email National Archives at College Park - Motion Pictures (RDSM) at mopix@nara.gov.

           

          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff.

          Discover America is available online through C-SPAN. We also located an entry for the film in the Internet Movie Database.
