Nepal Royalty Visit University of Oregon, 1960

20 May

I’ve discovered another hidden pocket of film in the library’s basement, and in the process of documenting it I found another piece of film to add to the Nepal trove. It is a short newsfilm, likely produced by KGW TV in Portland, of the Nepal king and queen’s visit to Oregon in 1960 [watch it here].

Mahendra of Nepal and his wife Lady Ratna Rajya Lakshmi Devi came to Oregon in part to recognize the American Nepal Education Foundation’s work to establish an education system in Nepal in the 1950s.

The transfer is low-res and greenish, unfortunately, but such is the state of our film chain.
