NBC in 1943

This is a 38 page book written in 1943 which gives a thorough history of the organization at that time.

Board of Directors and Officers

Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy and their war efforts.

Bob Hope and Frances Langford.  We know what they were doing.

Television in the early stages.

TV and war safety.

The future as they saw it back then.

Partial list of programming

This booklet is a perfect example of "why did she save this?".  But I have to say I find it very interesting to read about the way things were back then.  So, thank you, Madeline!
