Hello,

It will depend on the actors.  I would suggest that the faculty member begin 
their research by using two electronic databases:

Archive Finder and ArchiveGrid.

While the better known places like The Margaret Herrick Library (the AMPAS's 
library), Eastman House, LOC, UCLA and USC do have archival collections, there 
are many special collections at other places that have collections relating to 
actors and directors.

The University of Texas has many such collections as does Wesleyan University.  
Here at the University of Michigan, we have the archives of Orson Welles, 
Robert Altman and just recently John Sayles.

Best,

Hi All,

I have a professor who is writing a book about a couple of historic actors and 
would like to peruse relevant film archives.  What are some good options?  
Library of Congress’ Packard Campus?  The AFI?

Cheers,

Matt

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues 
relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, 
preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and 
related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective 
working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication 
between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and 
distributors.
