This collection of films was compiled by Jack Behrend who owned a camera equipment rental house and worked as a professional industrial filmmaker from the 1950s until the 1990s. Included in this collection are 13 reels of raw footage from an unfinished documentary of historical inns of America and time lapse footage of Grant Park, the Equitable Building and Lake Point Tower as they were being constructed. The collection includes industrial films about steel foundries, the making of railroad wheels and a film about the teachers' strike at Niles North in the 1970s. Also within this collection are films made by Gordon Weisenborn, a Chicago filmmaker who gave his films to Jack Behrend before his death. Behrend has donated the prints and rights of his films and those of Gordon Weisenborn to CFA. He has also donated 52 prints made by the National Film Board of Canada.

The Bob Heiber Collection is made up of student films, 16mm industrial films and 35mm filmstrips produced at Pilot Productions in Evanston, Illinois from 1976 until 1979. For all of the films in the collection, Bob was the film editor and sound mixer. In the later films he was also the director. These films are representative of the kinds of corporate sponsored films made to demonstrate new products or techniques. With the introduction of video technologies at the end of the 1970s much of this work was taken “in-house” to corporate communication departments and 16mm film production for corporate films rapidly declined. In the Bob Heiber Collection, locations range from constructions sites all around the United States as well as scenes filmed around the Chicagoland area.
