Bill Baily Motion Picture Films
Amateur motion pictures made by "Varsity" Bill Baily of the Arizona State University campus (then Arizona State Teacher's College) and the Varsity Inn in 1937 and 1938. Baily was the owner of the Varsity Inn restaurant on University Drive (then 8th street) from 1929-1944. The films depict student recreation, campus scenes especially on University Drive and College Avenue, Homecoming parades, and football games at Goodwin Stadium. Boxing and track are also depicted. Two of three existing silent black and white films are presented here. A portion of the R. Kenneth Baily Collection described at Arizona Archives Online and preserved with the support of the Luhrs Family Endowment.
