KPIX Editorial (Sutro Library)
Please note: This 'kinescope' recording was originally made in 1959 by filming the picture from a live video monitor. The picture quality - especially sharpness - is much lower than the rest of our footage produced on 16mm film. A KPIX Television editorial from 1959 by General Manager Philip J. Lasky, criticizing California Governor Pat Brown's budget plan to cut $25,387 funding the Sutro Library's operation within the State Library system and move it to the University of California. Lasky praises the work of the Sutro Library in preserving California's heritage, pointing out that the cost of moving the Libary would be more than $25k and that instead of the free services currently available to the public, there would be a charge of $6 per year at the University of California. He refers to this proposed move as "the deep freeze process."
