Media Burn Independent Video Archive

Media Burn Independent Video Archive ( holds the largest collection of Terkel video in the world, about half of it donated by Terkel himself. The other half is the work of Media Burn founder Tom Weinberg and his colleagues, who videotaped and collaborated with Studs for four decades. The entire collection of more than 300 hours was restored through support from the federal National Historical Publications and Records Commission and the Chicago-based Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation in 2008 and 2009.

Media Burn’s celebrated documentary collection of more than 6,000 videotapes presents 40 years of life in Chicago and America.
