Clyde DeVinna 1922

Clyde DeVinna 1922


In 1922, DeVinna was part of a rather large company taken to Tahiti by MGM director Raoul Walsh to film "Lost and Found on a South Sea Island."

From Wikipedia, the free encycloedia

"Clyde De Vinna (born July 13, 1890 in Sedalia, Missouri, died July 26, 1953 in Los Angeles, California) was an American film and television cinematographer and director of photography. He won the Academy Award for Best Cinematography for White Shadows in the South Seas, presented by American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1930 at their 2nd Academy Awards show.

De Vinna was cinematographer on over 120 film and television projects from 1916 through 1953. He graduated from the University of Arkansas and began his career began when he joned Inceville studios in 1915 as First Cameraman. In 1916 he shot The Raiders, the first film to be shot at what was to become MGM. He was also an avid ham radio enthusiast, serving as an army radio operator, and carrying a portable transmitter with him on all location shoots. While shooting Trader Horn (1931) on location in Kenya, he seconded as the project's ham radio operator, keeping the production crew in the African bush in contact with their base camp in Nairobi.

When on location in Alaska for eleven months for the filming of Eskimo (1933), he kept the production company in contact with their base.[6][8] While working in a small shack made air-tight against the cold, De Vinna was in short wave contact with a ham operator in New Zealand, and was overcome by carbon monoxide fumes emitted by his gasoline heater. When De Vinna's keystrokes faltered, the ham in New Zealand realized something was wrong, and put out a call for help to a ham in Hawaii, who in turn relayed the message to a ham in Alaska, which led to De Vinna receiving the necessary emergency aid.[6][8]

De Vinna's life as a cameraman, world traveler, and adventurer was captured in the 1939 Pete Smith MGM short film Radio Hams, written by Buddy Adler and directed by Felix E. Feist, with actor Alonzo Price starring as Clyde De Vinna.

De Vinna was also accomplished in aerial cinematography. His scenes shot in Air Cadet, were referred to as "exciting air sequences" that were the "true highlights in this routine drama""

Debris 4

Debris 4

Space Debris from Cosmos 954
Manufactured 1977 in the Soviet Union
Canada Science and Technology Museum
CSTM artefact no. 1988.1334
Student, University of Ottawa, Department of History
Group Member: Andrew

Those involved in the operation had to endure terrible personal conditions. The majority of the recovery took place in the winter of 1978 in one of the most desolate places on earth, the Canadian subarctic. Minus 40 degrees Celsius or colder was very common and made much worse by the strong wind chill. Because of the distance between the debris and existing air fields, a base was created on a frozen lake near Warden’s Grove, North West Territories. Later named Camp Garland, its creation was an engineering marvel, though life remained very tough there. Housing consisted of Styrofoam-lined tents accompanied by portable heaters which had to be turned off at night due to the risk of fire. While on duty, missions could take up to twelve hours/day, seven days/week, and were filled with risks. In one instance, after recovering debris, the helicopter would not start and the team had to spend the night waiting for rescue. In another, someone tripped onto irradiated debris due to his bulky equipment. Though the low morale of those involved is understandable, they should be commended for what they dealt with to recover debris.
