Former GFA President F. Hugh Grinnell has arranged for the duplication and distribution of two DVDs for the GFA:

The Crown of the Continent which was an article written by George Bird Grinnell and published in 1901 in The Century Magazine which described the beauties of the area soon to become Glacier National Park. George Bird Grinnell is called The Father of Glacier National Park.

Publisher Jack Hubbell produced this 90-minute DVD, all about Glacier National Park, which includes the rapidly-receding Grinnell Glacier. It has been shown on several PBS stations. Other topics of this DVD include:

* Glacier formation; history traced from the Ice Age.

* Man In Glacier

* George Bird Grinnell exploration, discoveries, naming, and mapping

* Great Northern Railway involvement in promoting the Park

* Building of the hotels and chalets

* Transportation within the Park, including the history of the White Motor Company red tour buses

* Building the Going To The Sun Road

* Clips from the 1956 Great Northern Railway promotional film about Glacier National Park

* And tons of incredible scenery!!!

The second DVD contains the entire 1956 Great Northern Railway promotional film showing the streamlined Western Star bringing guests to Glacier National Park with an overview of guests’ activities. It also contains outtakes and additional data not shown in the final product.

Price for both DVDs is $21.00 including shipping and handling. No credit cards, please. Personal checks, Cashier checks, and Money Orders only. USPS delivery only. Sorry, no International orders. Sorry, no bulk discounts.
