Harms Family DVDs

 Collection 0206-UA

The Harms Family has had many ties to the University of Maryland over the years. John Harms worked at the Naval Research Library (NRL) and was integral in creating a partnership between between the univesity and the NRL staff members. His children, Carla, Joan, and John Harms, graduated from UMD in 1959, 1960, and 1961 respectively. Other Harms relatives have also graduated from Maryland. This collection includes three DVDs titled "Harms Family Motion Pictures, 1933-2002" and one floppy disk containing a text index of the DVDs. Some highlights of the DVDs include short clips of the 1959, 1961, and 1990 University of Maryland graduation ceremonies, a 1988 Gymkana Rehearsal, and 1935 footage of Europe, including Nazi Germany. For a detailed listing of the footage and additional family information, please contact the University Archives.
