I began the Louise Brooks Society back in 1995, when I put together a few webpages and launched a website. I envisioned the LBS as a gathering place for like-minded individuals from around the world, a kind of virtual fan club in cyberspace. The LBS is that, as well as an extensive online archive of all kinds of material about this singular silent film star.

Back in 2002, I started the Louise Brooks Society blog. It has thousands of informative entries and is still going strong. That same year, I also launched RadioLulu. It streams Louise Brooks / silent film-themed music of the 1920s, 1930s, and today. The LBS has issued four books (with more on the way), organized screenings, curated exhibits, produced events, and conducted research across the United States. The LBS has also been at the forefront of advocating on behalf of the actress - this includes everything from helping others with their projects (documentaries, books, exhibits, film preservation, etc...) to researching and writing articles and championing the actress through an active social media presence.

Won't you help support the Louise Brooks Society and its many activities?
