Great discovery !
In the late fifties a man named Giles Todd was lecturing around Boston and Cape Cod with similar films he made during the thirties. He also made some good films during trips fishing off Canada and the Grand Bamks.
I’ve tried to find his books and any reference to his life but without success.
Think he lived in Hingham Ma. during later years.
If anyone has a suggestion I would follow up on it.
