Abstract:

Materials relate mostly to Storer and his work in connection with Ripley's "Believe It or Not," "Amazing But True," and "Renfrew of the Mounted," as well as his management of early radio personalities such as Robert Ripley, Bob Considine, Dale Carnegie, Laurie York Erskine, and Cab Calloway. The collection includes some correspondence of Storer; contracts between Storer, individuals he managed, publishers, and broadcast networks; subject files related to Storer's research for "Believe It or Not" and "Amazing But True" productions; a nearly complete set of original scripts for "Believe It or Not" and "Renfrew of the Mounted" radio broadcasts; and transcription discs and other recordings of selected "Believe It or Not," "Amazing But True," "Renfrew of the Mounted," and other radio shows produced by Storer or featuring individuals represented by him. Subject files generally contain research on oddities, unusual persons, facts and feats, and bizarre customs. Also included are photographs and film of Robert Ripley, mostly documenting production of early "Believe It or Not" radio and television programs; photographs of individuals that Storer represented; and photographs, negatives, slides, and travel diaries documenting Doug and Hazel Storer's travels and research for "Believe It or Not" and "Amazing But True" productions. Some materials relate to Barry Goldwater; Edward, Duke of Windsor; building a memorial at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; and Christmas celebrations. A small amount of material relates to television versions of Storer's projects. Selected publications by Storer, Ripley, Considine, and Erskine are also included.
