Reference: Edward R. Murrow’s Audio Essays Have Been Digitized and Put Online

From IDG News Service (via Computerworld):

More than 800 oral essays from Edward R. Morrow’s iconic 1950s radio series, This I Believe, have been digitized and placed online for public use by Tufts University.

The digitization project, carried out by Iron Mountain, included nearly 800 reel-to-reel tape recordings with historical giants such as Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Robinson, Harry S. Truman and Adlai Stevenson.

But, Morrow’s radio series also included the everyday teacher, butcher and social worker.


Tufts’ Edward R. Murrow Center for Public Diplomacy commissioned Iron Mountain to digitize the recordings, something that took six months to complete.
