When dinosaurs roamed the earth

Well, maybe not that long ago… but you might find it of interest to see that UGA has in its media archives film of the 1947 Sugar Bowl and the 1943 Rose Bowl.

Here’s the intro to the ’47 game.

  1. What’s more shocking…that UGA has football game archives on its site from 1947?

    Or that Tulane Stadium once held 75,000 people?

  2. Glory, Glory to Ole Georqia.

    How did you get them to play? My Quicktime player never connected.

  4. 69, what version of QuickTime are you running?

  5. God

    Dinosaurs never roamed the earth.

  6. We actually are stewards for the Athletic Dept’s game films. We house not only these few but over fourty years worth of game films. The Rose Bowl film posted is actually a B&W copy of a beautiful Technicolor print that is beginning to deteriorate (film lasts about sixty years). Unfortunately we do not have the funds necessary to preserve the collection properly at this time. So these dinosaurs may soon not roam the archive.

    Can you tell me what would be involved to do so, both in terms of how you go about preserving the collection and the costs for that? I’m interested in doing a post on this.

    Thanks.

  8. Great news for the Rose Bowl Film! We have sent the film for preservation! I will update you as I have information.

  9. Thanks. I’ll do a follow up post on this once I hear back from you.
