The Life and Work of Edward R. Murrow an archives exhibit


Completion of this project required significant support and the efforts of many.

Digital Collections and Archives (now Tufts Archival Research Center) wishes to thank Iron Mountain Entertainment Services for their generous contribution of services to stabilize and and digitize the nearly 200 reels of This I Believe essays in our Edward R. Murrow Collection. This work was key to stabilizing the original reels, repairing the damage of years, and creating high-resolution audio files to ensure that these voices can be preserved for future generations.

This project could not have been completed without funding support from the National Park Service’s Save America’s Treasuresgrant program, administered by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Grant funds from this program supported graduate students to work on identifying, transcribing, describing, and preparing the digital files for each essay for preservation and access online.
