Jerry H,

Our University employs a film archivist within the Modern Culture and Media department who has a film and video transfer machine.

Perhaps your campus employs someone similar?

He transferred our 16mm Feynman Lectures onto VHS and archived the originals and has archived all of my old 16mm movies.

I keep my 100 or so old 8mm loops stored in my ceiling rafters along with a player. They've not been requested or used for about 10 years mainly because I steer people towards new media and try to keep them away from the old media.

You might consider to send the Feynman material out to a studio to be transferred onto DVD?
