  1. Great to hear that you have done an oral history on 22 Minutes and will be reading it and recommending it – even if my teaching of the history of the film and television of Atlantic Canada at SMU has been retired. Indeed, there are many such subjects that I have collected contacts and resources on in my almost 50 years now of being an historian of sound and the moving image and consulting archivist – and would love to make them available if you do further work in these areas.
