there's also a really good chapter in one of the history of the movies books- hopefully I will inspire someone more resourceful to jot it down here- that covers Tolands dealing with SuperX b/w stocks and such on Kane.

Most of the info is also in Robert L. Carringer's book "The Making of Citizen Kane" (UC Press) in the chapter on its cinematography. Probably the best thing you could read along with Toland's original article in AC.
Carringer's book lists all his sources for info on Toland's photography, including some other magazine articles from the time.

Toland himself wrote a pretty thorough article on shooting "Citizen Kane" that appeared in American Cinematographer (Feb. 1941); they later reprinted it a couple of times, once in the 1970's (April 1975), and once more later I think.
Another best article is GREG TOLAND a master cinematographer and his work , by George E Turner ......American cinematographer magazine ,nov 1982.
