The John Cork collection contains a wide variety of both produced and unproduced material related to the James Bond phenomenon.
Primarily, the collection focuses on the James Bond films from 1962 (Dr. No) until 2002 (Die Another Day), and their impact
on worldwide society and culture. Contents of the collection include scripts, call sheets, photographs, periodicals, clipping
files, fan magazine content, merchandise, and other collected material. Much of the material comes from Cork's research while
producing official "making of" documentaries, as well as other published works as an author and filmmaker.
Born in Montgomery, Alabama, John Cork is a graduate of the School of Cinema-Television (now School of Cinematic Arts) of

Bond historian, he has (along with Bruce Scivally) co-produced numerous documentaries, featurettes, and co-authored
