The George A. Romero Archival Collection is housed at the University of Pittsburgh as part of its University Library System (ULS). The collection is composed of three separate archives belonging to his widow Suzanne Desrocher-Romero, daughter Tina Romero and business partner and friend Peter Grunwald. Beginning in 1968 with “Night of the Living Dead,” Romero revolutionized the horror genre, infusing it with intelligence, humor, social consciousness and, of course, unforgettable scares. His overall contributions will soon be accessible to allow scholars, students, filmmakers and fans worldwide to trace Romero’s projects from inception to completion. The collection of personal and professional materials from George Romero spans the past 50 years or more. It ranges from screenplays (both produced and unproduced) to props from the movies themselves. The archive can be visited by appointment with the Pitt Library collection contact, Ben Rubin.
