Dennis Glen Cooper (1905-1995) was a photographer, filmmaker and Detroit television host (Realm of the Wild) whose films were familiar to many Detroiters in the 1950s-60s. This collection consists of 35mm and lantern slides, drawn from a broader collection that also includes documents, 16mm films, and more. The collection spans the 1920s-1960s and includes coverage of Isle Royale, urban Saginaw, as well as the National Parks and the Caribbean. Cooper’s time as an Air Force captain in the Pacific arena during World War II is also documented.
