Abstract

Following earlier work by Patrick G. Loughney, this essay focuses on the appearance of a credit for "screenplay" during the years 1912–1920 in the descriptive infornnation provided in the Library of Congress Catalog of Copyright Entries: Cumulative Series. Motion Pictures 1912–1939 (1951) and its antecedents. In examining these records the author also investigates the general utility of copyright records as evidence, and comments on what these records do, and do not, provide.
