  Film Collection Donated by Harry Sweet  

Harry Sweet's gift to CSUS is a collection of six million feet of film covering a variety of events from January 1967 through September 1981. In the collection are film of Robert F. Kennedy's 1968 California presidential primary campaign victory and the date of his tragic assassination, the SLA and the Patty Hearst kidnapping, and a broad range of sports coverage. Footage from January 2, 1967, for instance, shows both the gubernatorial inauguration of Ronald Reagan and a performance rehearsal by the late comedian Jack Benny.

Sacramento television station KOVR offered the collection to Sweet Sacramento Valley's first television news camera operator and photographer in 1953 when the station was set to move into new facilities in 1990.

The collection is available by appointment.
