Scenario schools

Information regarding the Palmer Photoplay Corporation, now operating as the Palmer Institute of Authorship. The National Vigilance Committee had been investigating the Palmer school, a "scenario school" that taught how to write and sell film scenarios, for several years with the belief that it was a scheme to defraud. This memo outlines that under its new name, it has toned down the questionable activities but that it would continue to be watched. Included are some related documents.
