The David Drazin Collection contains both commercial prints that were created for the home market and home movies that were made at the Holy Family Academy school in Chicago between 1939 and 1946. The commercial films include educational films, a Dick Tracy cartoon, and Charlie Chaplin’s 1916 short “Behind the Screen.” The Holy Family Academy was an all-girls Catholic school on Chicago’s north side, and the home movies document nuns and young girls playing outside and on various outings in and around Chicago, as well as seasonal dance recitals.
This collection of home movies was shot by Chicagoan Frank "Burt" Bryant and document his wife (Anne Geraldine McCabe Bryant), mother (Hilda Jernberg Bryant), children (Peter, Ricard, David and Judith) and their family travels. The Bryant family lived primarily in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood, at 1726 W. Jarvis Avenue. All four of the Bryant children attended St. Jerome's Grammar School. The boys attended Loyola Academy for high school, while Judy attended St. Scholastica Academy. These family films include scenes of Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood, as well as footage of the family's annual summer trip to Eagle Lake, Wisconsin, where the McCabe family owned a cottage.
