The UCLA Film and Television Archives has received a $110,000 grant from the American Film Institute and National Endowment for the Arts Film Preservation Program in support of its nitrate film preservation program. The UCLA archives are one of 12 organizations receiving AFI/NEA grants totaling $355,600 to preserve, safeguard and restore films that might otherwise have been lost due to the deterioration of the nitrate base used in films until the early 1950s.

In the nearly two centuries since Coleridge's death, the papers have been kept by family members in the village of Ottery St. Mary in Devon, southwest England, where the creator of "Kubla Khan" and "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" was born.

With Brubeck's death at 92, we share our visit to his home in this profile from Dec. 5, 2010. WILTON, Conn -- Most people who have never lived in Connecticut imagine that the whole state is exactly like Wilton. It's not, but driving toward the town where Dave Brubeck lives, you understand why this dream never dies, especially in late autumn when every tree seems almost mythic in its chromatic display and every pitch and roll of the rural, straight-from-the-calendar-page landscape yields views that can either fill your heart or break it gently.

When a vampire expert allegedly seduced a tipsy UC Irvine student four years ago, he inadvertently set off a chain of events that now jeopardizes the school's control of a dead philosopher's prized archives. The story came to light after UCI announced this month that it would drop a lawsuit against the widow and sons of philosopher Jacques Derrida, the acclaimed founder of deconstruction, an influential but bewildering theory that questions the concept of absolute truth.
