Austin library exhibit features stand-ins

From Chandler Davidson:

Mike Miller, manager of the Austin public library, sent me a letter thanking me for the stand-in documents I gave to the library, and informing me as follows:

“You may be interested in knowing that we will be able to use some of your materials in support of our upcoming exhibit, ‘The First Picture Shows: Austin’s Historic Movie Houses.’ We will have a section in the exhibit on Black Theaters in Austin that will include the story of the stand-ins.  The exhibit opens on March 20, 2012 and runs through August 19.”
