Andrew Avery Home Movie Collection, 1930-195-?

The Andrew Avery Home Movie Collection documents the people and events of Bainbridge, Georgia and Decatur County from 1934 to the early 1950s in over 8000 feet of film that lasts for over 200 minutes. Mr. Avery, a UGA graduate, focused his camera on crops such as cotton, peanuts, sugar cane, and many others and the traditional farming practices of the time. Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church appears in his footage along with every other church in the county and the Temple located in Bainbridge. Also included in this amateur footage is a hospital built in Bainbridge by African-American physician Dr. Joseph Howard Griffin.
