The donation contains ten 16mm and one 8mm films showing Carnegie College of Physical Training shot by Ambrose Congdon, a keen amateur filmmaker, during his time at Carnegie in 1936-38. Congdon caught on film his fellow students at work and play, including shots of Mr and Mrs Major relaxing in their garden. He also filmed the beginning of land clearances for the 1938 extensions to Carnegie College. The films capture the 1937 Festival of Youth. There is also a photograph/scrap album from the same period. Included are letters received by Congdon during the months after he and his contemporaries left Carnegie.
