The Technicolor Corporate Archive was gifted to George Eastman House in 2009. The archive’s notebooks, dye bottles, research files, cameras, and printing equipment supplemented the museum’s existing holdings of vintage Technicolor cameras and Technicolor film negatives, including the color separation negatives for Gone With the Wind and The Wizard of Oz.

George Eastman House holds unparalleled collections of photographs, motion pictures, cameras and technology, and photographically illustrated books, totaling more than four million objects. A world leader in film preservation and photograph conservation, Eastman House educates national and international archivists and conservators through its academic and archival training programs. The museum’s film preservation strategies focus on the forgotten works of early cinema and on orphan films that would otherwise be lost through chemical decomposition. Established as an independent nonprofit institution in 1947, it is the third largest film archive in the United States and the world’s oldest photography museum. The museum is located in Rochester, New York, on the site of the National Historic Landmark house and gardens of George Eastman, philanthropist and father of popular photography and motion picture film.
