This collection consists of Bill Cheney's home movie projects. Some record recreation such as mountain climbing. Others cover travels to California and Oregon, or document jobs he worked on. Many record life in the Pacific Northwest, especially in the Seattle, Wash., area.
The collection is comprised primarily of an early television series, The Washington State Reporter, which was produced by the National Bank of Commerce and aired on KING-TV (Seattle, Wash.) from November 1951 to circa 1956. The collection also includes other non-fiction television programs from circa 1950 to 1976, most notably one on Vietnamese immigrants and several on Seattle topics, as well as home movies dating from 1931 to 1963.
