From the June 1979 issue of the "Industrial Worker," a brief advertisement of Eleanor Walden's proposed documentary on the 1919 tragedy. This documentary was part of her thesis proposal (also on file in the Centralia College Library). While filming was completed, Ms. Walden in a 2009 phone conversation with Darlene Rahn, indicated she filed a lawsuit with the videographer to obtain that film. While she won the suit, the film was allegedly lost in the 1990 Lewis County flood. The Pathe film referred to in this ad is also mentioned in other IWW supported documents, as well as a letter written on April 7, 1924 by defense lawyer George Vandeveer.
