Abstract:

The Jack Tarver Research Collection includes logs, indices, one transcript and sound copies of WSB, WABE and WAOK radio programs from the 1950s and the 1960s. Broadcast topics include: interviews with Ralph McGill in which he speaks of his childhood, communism in Guatemala and the Chattahoochee River; radio commentator Louis Lyons' tribute to Ralph McGill; a salute to Henry W. Grady with a re-enactment of his "New South" speech from 1886; commentary on 1964 current events from the radio program "Cracker Crumble"; and a recording of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's Nobel Peace Prize Dinner. Tribute is paid to Dr. King by Atlanta clergymen and politicians, followed by Dr. King's address to the audience.

Other subjects and programs included within this collection are: Atlanta radio broadcast programs by Harry Evans and Dan Reynolds; the national radio broadcast team of Huntley and Brinkley reporting on the events of 1963; a Meet the Press program featuring the "Poet of Democracy" Carl Sandburg; a CBS memorial program for Edward R. Murrow; reminiscences of John F. Kennedy and reflections on his assassination; the last speech of Virginia Senator Alben W. Barkley; astronaut Scott Carpenter's second American manned orbital flight on May 24, 1962; speeches, press conferences and interviews by William B. Hartsfield, Ralph McGill, and Marvin Griffin; Jack Tarver's review of the film, Gone With The Wind; radio broadcast speeches of John F. Kennedy as senator, presidential candidate and president; and a United Press International radio program on Kennedy's trip to Texas in 1963. The one transcript provided with this collection accompanies Lester Maddox's WSB radio press conference. Governor of Georgia at the time, Maddox proposes to reporters a boycott of Atlanta's two daily newspapers, the Atlanta Journal and the Atlanta Constitution Maddox accuses local media coverage of being unfair and biased against both him and his administration. He claims that the Atlanta newspapers are socialist propaganda vehicles that have also waged a war against public education, business owners, and the people of Georgia.
