Dear JudeAcers.com Reader,
As you probably know, we have been making a documentary about Jude Acers these past 5 years or so. One item we have had some difficulty nailing down is archival news footage featuring Jude. We do have some excellent footage of Jude in the 1960s playing chess at the Wagner family home in Baton Rouge (thanks to Larry Wagner), and we have also located Associated Press footage from 1972 (see still above). In the early 1980s Jude appeared nationally on PM Magazine, and we would love to get our hands on that footage (do you have an in with Eric Paulsen at WWL? He did the PM Mag piece). Anybody with a lead on this kind of archival footage, please leave a comment below and I’ll follow up with you.
