Abstract:

Papers of a Federal Communications Commission chairman (1961-1963) who focused national attention on the responsibilities of the television industry with his "vast wasteland" speech to the NAB in 1961. Correspondence dating from his years as chairman predominates, with chief topics of interest being an abortive reorganization of the commission, development of the government's role in satellite communication, and the expansion of educational television. There is also mail from the general public expressing opinions about broadcasting and letters from educators and publishers concerning public reaction to programs and commercials. Correspondence of significance is present from William Benton, Al Capp, Emanuel Celler, Martin Codel, LeRoy Collins, Everett M. Dirksen, Lawrence S. Fanning, Fred W. Friendly, Harry Golden, Arthur J. Goldberg, James C. Hagerty, Herbert Hoover, Hubert H. Humphrey, Lyndon B. Johnson, Nicholas Katzenbach, C. Estes Kefauver, and John F. Kennedy.

Other significant correspondents include Robert F. Kennedy, Edgar Kobak, Lawrence B. Laurent, Herbert H. Lehman, Lee Loevinger, Clare Boothe Luce, Edward P. Morgan, Edward R. Murrow, Gaylord Nelson, Maurine B. Neuberger, Richard M. Nixon, William Proxmire, James Reston, Eleanor Roosevelt, Robert W. and David Sarnoff, Dore Schary, Arthur Schlesinger Jr., Howard K. Smith, Merriman Smith, Lawrence E. Spivak, Frank Stanton, Sylvestor L. Weaver Jr., James A. Wechsler, Adlai E. Stevenson, and many others.

Other parts of the collection consist of articles, speeches, interview transcriptions, biographical press releases, speeches related to mass communications by individuals other than Minow, clippings, drafts of his book "Equal Time: The Private Broadcaster and the Public Interest" (1964), and three volumes of an organization and management study of the FCC, 1962. The film and sound recordings relate to Minow's many appearances before media organizations and on radio and television.

The processed portion is summarized above, dates 1954-1965, and is described in the register. Additional accessions are described below.
