One thought on “About”

  1. Dr Welch,
    I have very much enjoyed what I have read of your writings and your presentations on video on YouTube. I am most interested in your work on Gene Gauntier as she was my grandmother’s first cousin. Gene’s father and my great grandfather were brothers. The story about Gene being “the movie star” has long been passed down in my family. I have a lovely photo portrait of her that my grandma kept in prose of place. Work such as yours is greatly needed, not only to help preserve these early forms of cinema art, but, more importantly, to accurately portray the true role of women in the early motion picture industry. May I say a big “Thank You” for your efforts, and also, might I say “You Go Girl”
    and wish you best success with your work.
    Sincerely
    William Walkington
