Biographical Notes

"New York insurance broker and amateur filmmaker Duncan MacD. Little organized his first movie party for a small group of friends in 1929; he repeated the event annually for over a decade, eventually forging cooperative relationships with institutions such as Columbia University to enhance the screening further" (Tepperman, 76).
