Moving Image Collections
A central focus of GME’s archiving activities and business practice has been the rescue of celluloid film collections that we have uncovered in dead warehouse storage, and the repatriation of these important original materials to film archives and libraries worldwide. For more information about one of our noteworthy such library projects, see:
In addition, GME has initiated archiving projects for well-known film personalities, so as to further document the history of their moving image careers.
JFK's Presidential Campaign
An extremely rare collection of advertising materials from John F. Kennedy’s 1960 Presidential campaign, comprising approximately 100 reels of original 16mm film and 1⁄4-inch audio recordings are currently being offered for sale on an exclusive basis by Gartenberg Media Enterprises (GME), a New York City based archival firm. These items, which have been in the hands of an individual who worked on Kennedy’s original campaign, remained in a basement for almost half a century, before being turned over to GME for assessment, inspection, cataloguing, preservation, and sale.
