1 edition published in 1956 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Cavalcade of America, was an early exercise in corporate image-building by the DuPont Corporation. The idea was that DuPont would promote its products through their connections to national historical figures. The company was able to emphasize its products in episodes of Cavalcade of America by featuring health-related episodes that revolved around the use of chemical products manufactured by DuPont. In the 1950s, DuPont switched its advertising strategy from radio to television, and Cavalcade of America became a television series produced through Gene Autry's Flying A Productions. One hundred and thirty-three episodes were aired over five seasons between 1952 and 1957. During a six-month period, the television and radio series overlapped. The show was telecast on both NBC (1952-53) and ABC (1953-57). It was renamed DuPont Cavalcade Theater in August 1955, and released as DuPont Theater during its last year. In the 1957 fall season it was replaced by The DuPont Show of the Month, a 90-minute live dramatization of popular novels and short stories or abridged versions of films and plays. The series ran until 1961
