Your Support

Ozzie Nelson's Band

Thank You to Contributors!


We are grateful to the following people who have supported the film project: Larry Jodsaas, Dr. Mark Migliori, Don Stolz, Elizabeth Bennett, the Nicholson Family Foundation, and Charlie Boone.

What Your Gift Will Do


You, too, can help Normandale Community College and Bob DeFlores carry forward an important part of our cultural heritage -- the names, faces, sights, and sounds of the twentieth century. Your tax-deductible donation to the Normandale Community College Foundation, designated for the DeFlores Film Project, will make it possible for us to introduce students to fascinating people, long-lost places, and historical events by way of this wonderful film collection.

Support is needed for film digitization (transfer from film and tape to digital formats), inventory and cataloging, oral history interviews and transcriptions, research, television productions, and writing and publication of education materials. Let us know if you have a specific interest, and we will use your gift for that purpose.

Sponsorships for Television Productions


Sponsorship includes all field and post production by Twin Cities Public Television; fees for script writers, hosts, and narrators; and related expenses. Sponsorship credit will remain with the program when it is used for educational purposes in classrooms.
