Welcome to the Mary Pickford Foundation’s online research center

This website is our virtual office, an immediately accessible research tool and a key element in fostering the Foundation’s mission to further Mary Pickford’s commitment to her craft, her community and her philanthropy while inspiring future generations of women and filmmakers.

Original videos and writings, photographs, archives, collections, film clips and historical material illustrating the tremendous impact Mary Pickford and her colleagues had on the film industry are featured here. This site also highlights the Mary Pickford Foundation’s ongoing cooperation with film archives worldwide on joint preservation projects and our educational outreach programs, including support for the scoring of films as well as sharing and promoting the screening of restored films. We are adding information regularly and welcome your questions and ideas.
