In the News: Gift boosts launch of National Recording Preservation Foundation | The Washington Post

The gift from White — the Detroit musician who formed the White Stripes and the Raconteurs — shows a serious “commitment by a really busy songwriter and performer donating both his time on the board, and money to preserve our national song recording heritage,” says Eric J. Schwartz, the founding director and board member of the National Film Preservation Foundation, upon which the National Recording Preservation Foundation was modeled. Schwartz’s group has raised nearly $6 million to fund about 2,000 film preservation projects across the country.
