Here's a short article on my donation of the Grauman Theatre music to the University of Colorado.

Nice article, Rodney! I remember that day, getting to be more a flunkee directing traffic than anything else. Glad to know it's gone to a good home.

Yes, thanks to everyone who showed up! We put a lot of miles on the U-Haul dolly getting boxes into the truck. I got to do the same thing here in Colorado in the other direction, and the weight of those boxes killed at least one rickety library cart...

B'gad, here it is the future and you're right. Great thing to do, Rodney.

If you knew how much of my house it occupied, you wouldn’t call it self sacrifice! It’s nice to be able to move around again. And I can now park and charge my car in the garage!

The U of Colorado has been quite generous, hosting some silent film screenings. And they’ve asked me about teaching a course in film-score compilation next year! I hope it comes together.
