About this Exhibit

About the Exhibit

Exhibit idea and concept, overall design as well as texts and selection of photographs and documents are by Susanne Belovari (Ph.D, M.S., M.A.), Archivist for Reference and Collections, Digital Collections and Archives (now Tufts Archival Research Center). A very good friend, professor emeritus Marianne Ferber, made her indelible mark on the text of the home page. The author is also indebted to Terry Maher who generously proofread all but one essay and pointed out new literature regarding Laurence Duggan. Any mistakes and omissions are of course solely the author's responsibility.

Victoria Lee (A'11) executed the exhibit design by adapting a free web design by Igor Jovic as well as incorporating the beautiful wiki design of the Murrow Collection Home developed by Ilene Chen (Tufts University Information Technology). The Murrow Collection Home has been integrated with this exhibit.

Michelle Romero, M.A., Murrow Digitization Project Archivist, took photographs of artifacts and awards, scanned in the numerous documents used for the online exhibit, prepped most photographs and worked on the first wiki exhibit pages.

Except for three photographs, all images are from the Edward R. Murrow Papers, ca 1913-1985, DCA, Tufts University used with permission of the copyright holder as well as from the Joseph E. Persico Paper, DCA.
