Lynne Sachs was contacted by Library Director Dr. Larry Wilt and Chief Curator Tom Beck regarding the donation of her original source material used to create, "Investigation of a Flame," (2001) a documentary film about the Catonsville Nine. The Library agreed to cover the costs of digitization by DiJiFi; the digital files were sent to UMBC in Fall 2013 (MSS 2013-03). The available release forms and a digital file copy of the documentary were sent by Lynne Sachs in December 2013 (MSS 2013-05).
