Film scholar, instructor, filmmaker and author, Christopher Jacobs devoted his life to the study of movies. The extraordinary collection of DVD’s and Blu-ray discs he donated to the Chester Fritz Library can be summed up in one word: eclectic. From silent movies to foreign language films, from Hollywood masterpieces to classic cartoons and new wave anime, from drama and westerns and romance to horror and science fiction films, Chris loved and collected them all. And he gifted the approximately 10,000 title collection to the Chester Fritz Library for all our patrons to enjoy.
