ORGANIZATION OF AMERICAN HISTORIANS TO MEET IN BOSTON The O.A.H. annual meeting in Boston April 16-19 will include two sessions on film & history. One, entitled "Teaching About the American Revolution Through Film," will include papers on designing dramatic films for the classroom and teaching dramatic films. There will also be a seminar on "The Film As Social Criticism." Both sessions will be summarized in a later issue. LETTERS Dear Editors: As early as Spring 1898, the Sears Roebuck catalog carried advertisements for public entertainment outfits including one for "animated pictures" (i.e., motion pictures). I am trying to locate other data on sales, purchase, and display of films during this period. I am especially interested in other than metropolitan centers. It would be deeply appreciated if you would include in your notes section a solicitation of information that your readers might run across, perhaps in the search for other data on this period. A single ad in a farm or rural journal, for instance, would be useful but obviously difficult to locate directly.
