Smith (1914-2002), an award-winning news analyst and foreign correspondent, consisting of material on his career with both the ABC and CBS networks. CBS radio scripts pertain to his work as a World War II correspondent and to his post-war commentaries. The former are made up of stories written in Switzerland, 1941-1944, and while covering the Allied advance with the Ninth Army, 1944-1945. Also dating from this period are cables and dispatches to the London "Daily Herald," "Time," and "Life." CBS television scripts consist of Smith's brief analyses of news events for "Douglas Edwards and the News," 1957-1961. Fan mail, 1944-1961, relates chiefly to this program. After switching to ABC, Smith had his own television program, "Howard K. Smith--News and Comment." For this show the collection includes viewer mail, fan mail evaluations, clippings, and New York office files, plus tape recordings and films. There are film interview transcripts with such people as Paul H. Douglas, Samuel J. Ervin, Jr., James A. Farley, Gerald R. Ford, Orville E. Freeman, Lillian Gish, Harry Golden, Albert A. Gore, Sheilah Graham, Ernest Gruening, Leonard W. Hall, Philip A. Hart, James R. Hoffa, Hubert H. Humphrey, Jacob K. Javits, C. Estes Kefauver, Joseph E. Levine, John V. Lindsay, Eugene J.
