Nobody knew Austin better than Ramon Galindo. The hours the professional tailor didn't spend in his shop, he spent using his camera to document life in Texas—specifically Austin.
A World War II veteran, Galindo donated more than 200 films and videotapes to the Texas Archive of the Moving Image, including everything from home movies, self-made instructional and narrative films, and footage of magic performances. (Did we mention he was also a well-known local magician?) His expansive collection is the largest amateur film collection found in our archives.
Daughter Josie Galindo Caballero joins us on Tuesday, November 8 at 6 p.m. to explore her father’s collection and its unique view of Austin. Tune in on Facebook, YouTube Live, or Twitch.
