Dr. Capella holds a BA in history, a Masters in English, a M.Phil in English, and a PhD in English. He has long been interested in silent films and possesses an extensive collection of film star photographs. That interest has led to four presentations on social issues, interracial relationships, societal codes and mores, etc. in films from 1908-1920. In addition, he has accumulated an extensive collection of pre-1914 photographs of European royalty and military figures (primarily German & Austrian), as well as a WWI helmet, requiem cards, and gas mask. Many of these are currently on loan to the Boys of the Saint Thomas Choir School, NYC.
