For the entirety of The ONWARD Project, we have been in contact and collaborating with the Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis College. Their archive includes a tremendous amount of Rainbow Bridge Monument Valley Expedition photographs, letters, documents, film reels and more. In 2018, the Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis College received grants from the National Film Preservation Foundation and the Colorado Historical Records Advisory Board to digitize film from the RBMV Expedition.
They were very generous to share with you these snippets of film from the Expedition. These are truly precious pieces of film that place you right back in time into the 1930’s Southwest.
