Archival materials
Scope and Contents:
The films gathered together under this heading were listed in previous inventories under a variety of titles (see below) that gave scant indication of their contents. They relate to the work of Martin A. Couney, who pioneered in the development of incubators for premature infants and exhibited both the infants and the apparatus in fairs and amusement parks early in the twentieth century.

The films themselves are not self-explanatory; in fact, they are difficult even to summarize. Furthermore, they may have been cut for reuse. There are no records of provenance or use. Most of the information in the Archives Center on these films comes courtesy of Martin Pernick (Department of History, University of Michigan). Particularly useful is an article in Pediatrics (August 1979), "Incubator-Baby Side Shows," by William A. Silverman, M.D. (Some of the films appear to have come to the Museum from Dr. Silverman).

Mr. Pernick also was responsible for obtaining a grant for the preservation of Genetic Studies of Infant Behavior. As part of this project prints were borrowed from the Gesell Institute of Human Development in New Haven, Connecticut, for comparison to NMAH's copy. Additional details, including detailed viewing notes, can be found in Audiovisual Collections administrative files.

Item RF8 222.37 (reference print)
Type:
Archival materials
Scope and Contents:
[1939—1940?]. 1 ree (ca. 700 ft.) si., b&w; 16mm. positive (ref. print); Credits: [Clinic] director, Arnold Gesell, M.D.

Summary: Premature infants in incubators and being fed, bathed, and dressed by nurses. Footage is quite choppy and sometimes of poor quality. There are some intertitles and signs identifying individual infants.

The Archives Center's copy (archival positive) listed in previous Medical Sciences Film Catalogue as "N.Y. World's Fair, 1939-1940, Incubator Baby." This probably is the film listed in Medical Sciences Division's inventory as "1939 Fair Sequences, 7 min, Hartman-Gesell."

For convenience, Archives Center's copy also has been labeled "Collection #222, can #1." Additional prints were borrowed from the Gesell Institute of Human Development: "Fetal Film R2068" and "Behavior of Fetal Infant Reel 2069" (from can labels). They were virtually alike and more complete than Coll. #222 can #1, although AC's copy has some footage not in the Gesell prints. Coll. #222 can #1 and Gesell #2068 were chosen for preservation; duplicate negatives and reference prints were made of these prints at Bono Film & Video Services in February 1989. These negatives and prints have been retained by the Archives Center. (Video copies also were made for Martin Pernick.) Gesell #2068 and Gesell #2069 were forwarded to the Historical Audiovisuals Collection at the National Library of Medicine in July 1989, as a transfer from the Gesell Institute of Human Development.
