Abstract:
Records of National Educational Television, a private organization underwritten by the Ford Foundation which provided programming for the nation's public broadcasting stations. Originally known as the National Educational Television and Radio Center, NET's activities developed from program acquisition to production, station activation, and a wide variety of services until it functioned as a virtual fourth network. The collection includes correspondence, memoranda, scripts, reports, clippings, photographs, financial records, minutes, and publicity. There are, however, only a limited number of tapes and films. Coverage in incomplete at the highest administrative level, but it is significant for station activation, affiliate relations, and programming. There is also information on NET's on-going self-evaluation and financial shortages; its relations with other organizations concerned with public broadcasting; and its public information, development, and research activities.

Biography/History

National Educational Television (NET), originally called the Educational Television and Radio Center, was a non-profit, tax-exempt, independent organization whose primary mission was to provide national and international programming for the educational television stations of America. NET provided ten hours each week of distinctive programming in fine arts and music, the humanities, the social sciences, the sciences, children's programs, and public affairs. At its demise in 1971, more than fifty per cent of its programming was in the field of public affairs, with cultural and children's programs comprising the balance. Non-current programs were available to educational stations through NET's program library and the NET Film Service, a permanent, self-supporting library administered by Indiana University, which made past programs available to serve the audio-visual, non-broadcast needs of schools, colleges and universities, industry, and other adult training and community groups.

Established in 1952 by the Ford Foundation's Fund for Adult Education (FAE), NET was organized along lines recommended by the National Association of Educational Broadcasters (NAEB), with a self-perpetuating board drawn from a wide range of American business, educational, and civic leadership. During its twenty-year existence, the bulk of NET's financial support was provided by the Ford Foundation. However, governmental agencies, other foundations, corporations and industries, and individuals also made substantial contributions. During its early years, NET's main focus was adult education. The first grant of three million dollars from the FAE stipulated that from 1953 to 1956, five-sixths of this amount be expended for liberal adult education programming.

From 1952 to 1953, C. Scott Fletcher, president of the FAE, was acting president of NET, and in 1953, Harry Newburn, president of the University of Oregon, became president of NET. Throughout his five year administration, Newburn maintained close contact with educational leaders and helped bring them to an increasing acceptance of television as a medium of education. Under his direction, NET also began a program exchange service in 1954, utilizing programs produced principally by educational stations.

John White, head of Pittsburgh Community Station WQED, was named president of NET in 1958 and began enactment of policies which had been recommended to the Board of NET affiliates. The organization's name was changed to the National Educational Television and Radio Center and its headquarters were moved from Ann Arbor, Michigan, to New York City. At the same time, NET began to expand its activities and put its full resources into obtaining the best programming possible. It created a Utilization Department (1960); joined the International Television Federation (1960); took on many activities formerly conducted by the Joint Council on Educational Television (JCET); began to expand its role in educational radio; initiated steps toward possible interconnection of member television stations; planned for extensive participation in instructional television; and took an active, though temporary, role in the activation of new educational television stations.

The Ford Foundation assumed direct responsibility for NET support with a three-year grant in 1956, and a five million dollar grant in 1959. In 1962, NET received an interim grant of slightly less than five million dollars, while the Foundation began a comprehensive study of “the position and potential of noncommercial television as a national system, including its role, content, size and cost.” The results of the study recommended that NET concentrate upon developing a high quality television program service and relinquish its other activities. In 1963, the Foundation gave NET six million dollars for its 1964 operations to improve the scope and quality of the national educational television service. At the same time, NET divested itself of radio and instructional television activities, its leadership in station activation and maintenance, and its station services activities in Washington, D. C. Primary attention was given to programming in public affairs and cultural areas for adult audiences and to daily programs for children.

Subsequent one-year grants of six million dollars from the Ford Foundation, combined with underwriting from other contributors for the production of specific programs or series, permitted NET to improve the quality of its total programming service. In addition to public and critical acclaim for its programming, NET programs have earned such honors as Peabody Awards, Sylvania Awards, International Film Festival Awards, a Thomas Alva Edison Foundation Mass Media Award, and an Emmy for outstanding television contributions to the American people.

When John White resigned in 1969 the Center was indeed the controlling hub of a 4th Network. As James Day took over the reins, however, the Center was only two years away from extinction. In January, 1971, NET merged with New York's ETV Channel 13. It continued to be a major supplier of quality programming for the nation's ETV stations, but it relinquished direct control and administration of the 4th Network to the Public Broadcasting Corporation, an organization established by Congress in the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967.

To augment this brief historical sketch, the researcher is urged to read. The First Decade of the “Fourth Network,” An Historical Descriptive Analysis of the National Educational Television and Radio Center by Donald Neal Wood, The National Association of Educational Broadcasters: A History by Harold E. Hill, and the pertinent sections of Erik Barnouw's three volume History of Broadcasting in the United States. All three works are available in the Historical Society library. Crucial for the background it provides through 1963 is Wood's work. The researcher who consults it, and keeps its and Barnouw's chronological tables handy for ready reference, will find his work with the records of NET considerably eased. With such a work available, it seemed pointless to offer an extended historical statement here. For the post-1963 chronology, please refer to the processing notes which include some reference material used during processing, and a folder of personnel directories and organizational charts for various years. (In a box at the beginning of Series 2A.) Also, an excellent and brief statement of NET's purpose is in the 1963-Amended By-Laws of 1952 for NET filed in Series 3.

Arrangement of the Materials

The NET records are organized in ten series: Series 1, Board of Directors; Series 2, Administration Records, 1953-1968; Series 3, Vice President for Development Records, 1957-1966; Series 4, Business Affairs, 1964-1966; Series 5, Network Affairs Records, 1951-1967; Series 6, Public Information Records, 1954-1969; Series 7, Research and Education Records, 1953-1968; Series 8, Programming Records, 1953-1968; Series 9, International Division Records, 1959-1968; and Series 10, Films.

Scope and Content Note

The records of National Educational Television are so voluminous and complex that they contain nearly every conceivable type of document, including correspondence, minutes, reports, press releases, evaluation and report forms, scripts, studies and research reports, tapes, films, etc. The records are arranged in ten series in order to reflect the functional organization of NET. A detailed statement of the contents of each of the ten series follows this section.

Programming (1953-1968, 252 boxes), the largest series, consists of a small file pertaining to the vice-president of that division; subject and title files on program acquisition during the pre-production era; and later production files for cultural, public affairs, and science programs. Many of the latter refer to the work of producer Jac Venza. Well documented programs include The Creative Person, Environmental Revolution, History of the Negro People, Magazine of the Arts, NET Playhouse, People and Politics, Population, Through the Eyes of..., U.S.A.: Arts, Music, and Poetry. There is also a file of programs produced in cooperation with Westinghouse Broadcasting Company for Interel, a script library, and program evaluations.

Network affairs (1951-1967, 240 boxes), the second largest series, contains an extensive file on the Joint Committee on Educational Broadcasting, the Joint Council on Educational Television, and the Fund for Adult Education, three groups whose records NET inherited. In the papers of the vice-president for network affairs are minutes of affiliate meetings, profiles of many stations, and an affiliate newsletter.

Somewhat smaller files relate to administration (1953-1969, 22 boxes), development (1957-1966, 15 boxes), business affairs (1964-1966, 19 boxes), public information (1954-1969, 44 boxes), research (1953-1968, 16 boxes), and international relations (1959-1968, 11 boxes). The administrative files concern meetings, conferences, and relations with the National Association of Educational Broadcasters and include some files of President John F. White. There is little financial material in the collection, but some information may be gleaned from business affairs division records which detail the accounts of several cultural and public affairs programs and from the files of the vice-president for development who was responsible for fund-raising and procuring research support. The public information division prepared promotional material on specific programs for ETV affiliates, the press, and the public; its documentation includes newsletters, photographs, clippings, press releases, publicity packages, and award material. Charged with maximizing the impact of ETV, the research division studied audience behavior and station needs and worked with educators and publishers to broaden utilization of educational programs and develop instructional packages. Located here are studies by universities and other organizations with NET grant funds. In addition to the usual office files, there are also utilization materials on Age of Kings, Environmental Revolution, History of the Negro People, and Population. Eleven boxes record the efforts of the international division in securing foreign programming.

With noticeable consistency, the internal officers of NET kept their records in reverse chronological order within individual file folders. For the most part, that arrangement has been retained. Exceptions include those files that came to the SHSW in complete disarray and those files kept by individuals outside the physical premises of NET, such as producers under contract to them, who often had a very distinctive filing method of their own; in these cases, regular chronological order was often imposed.

In a collection the size of NET, some duplication of information and materials is inevitable and occasionally desirable. For example, several of the series contain information on the NAEB, and the JCET-JCEB. Also, press releases are scattered throughout, despite consistent effort to pull the vast majority of them together in one file in Series 6. Annual reports of the departments can be found in the President's files, VP for Administration and VP for Network Affairs. Both VP for Network Affairs and BP for Development files contain Board of Directors Meeting Minutes, which are about the only documents containing information on the Board in the entire collection, other than an occasional letter. The rationale for duplication of such items as the annual reports and the Board minutes, is that when annotated they document the relationship of that particular office with the Board. Development, for example, played a much more influential role in Board affairs than Network Affairs.

The collection documents primarily the first decade of NET's existence, 1953-1963. Especially well documented are NET's station activation activities; its relations with its affiliates; and all aspects of its programming. Less well documented, but accounted for by a significant quantity and quality of files are the origins of NET; its relationship with other ETV organizations; and its public information, development and education and research activities. Very little or no information is available on the Board of Directors, business affairs, and the international division.

Overall the collection fails to document fully the motives behind the Ford Foundation's lavish support of NET for twenty years; the relationship between NET's top executives and the Board of Directors, between NET's top echelon and Ford, and between Ford and the Board; and the extent and nature of the Board's activities, whether they played a meaningful role with viable and responsible assignments or were simply figureheads to add lustre to NET's facade. The archives as yet include only a few films of NET productions. There are no early annual reports and no information of the Public Broadcast Laboratory and other such programs from 1966-1971 when NET really prospered as the 4th Network.

Two strong, recurring themes that run throughout the papers are the need for economy -- there was never enough money, there was never enough frugality -- and the continual and repeated re-definition of NET's nature and its role relative to commercial television, a process that seemed to occur almost on a program-by-program basis.

The researcher should note the following documents as being especially useful for either the inclusiveness or conciseness of their content: annual reports (Series 2A, Box 11, Folders, 12-13), 1964 Statement of Program Philosophy and Purpose (Series 3, Box 2, Folder 17), Program Development Portfolio for 1962 (Series 3, Box 3, Folder 14), and the Semi-Annual Reports submitted to the Ford Foundation (Series 3, Box 2A). The researcher needing information on a specific program or series should check the container list for virtually every series.

Boxes are numbered consecutively within each numbered sub-series, for example, Series 8D, Cultural Programming, contains the files of two directors and four producers, but the boxes are numbered from 1 to 52 within 8D.

Biography/History

After the Board of Directors, NET's highest level of leadership was the office of the President.

The Newburn years (1953-1958), characterized by conservatism, were five years of solid accomplishment during which NET was firmly established as the center for ETV programming and information in the United States. The pernanent Center staff under Newburn was kept small, consisting of an assistant to the president, a director of programming, and, after two years, a director of deveopment. Program consultants were hired in varying numbers, to assist director of programming Robert Hudson,[1] but only for one year appointments. This was Newburn's method of achieving a continual influx of new blood and ideas.

All the Center staff worked together. With headquarters in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the small staff handled all the duties for which separate departments were eventually established, namely, public information, development, network affairs, distribution, business affairs, and programming. Programming was generally of poorer quality during these early years, in part due to high turnover of program consultants as mentioned, and in part due to inability to find significant amounts of quality programming that was suitable and available for ETV use.

In 1958, John White was appointed president of NET. For the following eleven years the mark of his personality and the impact of his forward-looking innovations were felt in the nation at large through the growing influence of the 4th Network. White moved the Center headquarters to New York, greatly expanded the permanent staff, began to emphasize quality programming regardless of the cost and embarked NET upon a campaign in quest of non-Ford Foundation monies and a permanent endowment. In 1960 White personally directed the new development campaign and was squarely behind the establishment of the new Vice President for Development position. In general, public relations and promotional activities received a great deal of emphasis under White, but, ironically, his years of expansion failed to elicit a corresponding expansion of research into ETV itself.

Scope and Content Note: The records consist of fragmented files from the President's office and some files from the office of the Vice President for Administration. No files exist in the archive yet for the position of Senior Vice President, which was occupied by Robert Hudson from 1965 to 1971. Most of Hudson's activities prior to his appointment as Sr. V. P. are documented in the Program Subject File and the Program Title File as well as throughout the collection, since his influence was felt throughout NET.
Subseries: Subseries 2A. President's Office
Scope and Content Note: The records of the President's Office consist of a remnant of the Early Central File (1953-1962) and a portion of John White's file (1953-1966). Together they constitute the primary documentation on the origins of NET at the ETRC; early efforts to promote educational television in the United States; the nature of the presidential office at NET during the first 14 years of NET's 20 year existence; and NET's relationship with the federal government and other organizations concerned with educational broadcasting.
Early Central File, 1953-1962
Physical Description: 10 boxes 
Scope and Content Note

Nearly three-fourths of this file is correspondence, but it also contains printed material, report forms, shipping memos, grant applications and awards, and near-print material from stations, foundations, organizations. Arranged in a subject file, the two largest categories are “Meetings and Conferences,” where much information on the origins of NET can be found, and the “National Association of Educational Broadcasters,” where documentation on the relationship between NAEB and NET can be found, as well as information on the program production grants they jointly administered. These ETRC-NAEB radio grant-in-aid application files often contain script treatments of the program for which the station was requesting financial support.

In addition to the grants and meetings, the file concerns radio in general, grass roots efforts to establish NET and ETV -- including correspondence with individuals, commercial TV stations, educational organizations and institutions, foreign countries, and other organizations of all kinds. Also included is documentation of the early concern of ETV stations over such problems as distribution, production, technical aspects such as kinescopes, promotion of educational broadcasting, and how to stimulate new and creative thinking in producing for ETV. The people most in evidence in the file are H. K. Newburn, Lyle M. Nelson, Barton Griffin, and George L. Hall. There is some John White material in the NAEB meetings folders.

Probably only a core of the original central file exists, as it appears that, in addition to the normal amount of weeding done by NET secretaries prior to shipping, certain folders were removed when the subject they covered became the responsibility of a newly-created office.

NAEB Radio Grants-in-Aid, 1952-1960.
Scope and Content Note: The grants-in-aid program originated under ETRC. Originally, funds (In the amount of $40,000 annually, plus $2000 NAEB administrative expense) were handed over to the NAEB for disbursement. As the program became organized, it was decided to modify that plan because the ETRC was not a grant-making organization and needed to take more direct responsibility for the radio grants program. So, the grants-in-aid were made directly by the Center, after screening of applications and recommendations from the NAEB Grants-in-Aid Committee. A program associate was added to the Center staff to assist that committee in matters of management and procedure, to provide liaison between the Center and the NAEB and to follow through with grantees on matters relating to completion of series production. Later, a special three-year plan was initiated out of a desire for a less random, more unified relationship between radio series. The plan provided for a grant of $100,000 per year for three years: 1. to continue the grants-in-aid and 2. to provide for the commissioning of special radio series. ETRC initiated the proposals for the latter and the NAEB Grants-in-Aid Committee acted in an advisory capacity, in addition to evaluating and making recommendations on applications for grants-in-aid.

John White's File, 1953-1966
Physical Description: 5 boxes 
Scope and Content Note

John White's presidential files are not as voluminous (5 boxes for eleven years) or informative as one would expect. In fact, they are downright disappointing. Their paucity is no doubt due to: weeding performed by NET secretaries; retention of files for James Day's use; possible documentation of some of White's activities in other NET files or in a personal file which he still has in his possession; and the certainty that much of his work was performed over the telephone or in personal conferences.

About 50% of this file is correspondence; the other half is comprised of annotated printed and near-print matter, reports, scripts, clippings, lists, statistics, speeches, articles, notes, etc. The bulk of the material pertains to the period 1962-1964, although there is some material passed on to him from Newburn, and thus the early inclusive date of 1953. Part of the file arrived loose and separate from the rest without clear indications as to the original filing arrangement, but there were evidences that it was alphabetical, so such an arrangement was used.

There is very little information herein on the internal operation or events of NET; rather, the files relate to White's personal activities, such as speech making, chairing committees, etc., and his professional activities as head of NET. It is not easy to distinguish between the two. As can be seen from the container list, most of the files pertain to organizations, institutions and events outside NET, such as NAEB, NITL, JCET, U.S.-H.E.W., BBC, etc. Rather than being a criticism of the paucity of presidential files, this observation is probably an accurate indicator of the functions of the president's office during the years White occupied it, consisting mostly of outside promotion and fundraising work, educating others about ETV, and working out policies and long-range plans for a growing TV network, while the day-to-day business of producing and distributing television programming was left to others. Newburn was deeply involved in the day-to-day administration of the Center and in satisfying the immediate needs of the stations, while White increasingly wore the cloak and filled the sophisticated role of good-will ambassador at large on behalf of ETV.

However, White did involve himself in the actual production work from time to time. Such a program was “Championship Debate”, produced by Larry Pickard, where most of the pre-production correspondence was conducted by White. In fact, the 1962-63 folder of correspondence in Pickard's file was really White's file, but was apparently given to Pickard by White for the former's use, as it arrived at the SHSW among Pickard's files.

Biography/History

This office probably originated with Kenneth Yourd in 1958, when he was already acting in this capacity, although he then carried the dual title of Executive Secretary and Vice President of NET. Yourd was succeeded in 1961 by Arthur M. Griffin, who gave way to Edwin Bayley in 1963. Bayley held the office for six years, serving as Public Affairs Editor for NET at the same time. In 1969, Richard M. Catalano succeeded him and was acting in the office at the time of the 1971 merger.

The purpose of this office seemed to be what the title implied, one of overall coordination and administration of the Center's non-programming or supporting activities. Directly responsible to the VP for Administration at one time or another were the Directors of Engineering and Technical Distribution, including NET Film Service, Legal Affairs, and Reports. This officer also had some responsibility for routine public relations, financial-accounting and programming, as well as office management, office efficiency, the physical plant, etc. The office was responsible for making people aware of company policy re: sick leave, vacation, misuse of the phones, etc. The VP for Administration seemed to do a little of everything. He never went into any area in depth until 1965 when Bayley's position as Public Affairs Editor involved him as emcee of the series entitled Regional Reports.

Scope and Content Note: The files consist of about 60 per cent correspondence and 40 per cent reports. Covering mainly 1960-1966, they are arranged in an alphabetical subject file preceded by the general correspondence and the financial memos. The main subjects are FAE grants, correspondence with affiliates, FCC hearings on non-commercial use of TV satellites in 1966, programs, and NET Film Service, whose correspondence includes promotional literature, order forms, articles, and program descriptions. Much material is Bayley's as Public Affairs Editor, and the only in depth files are his, on Regional Reports. The files are highly fragmentary as documentation of the office of Vice President for Administration. Especially sparse is the information on the Kenneth Yourd years.

Series: Series 3. Vice President for Development Records, 1957-1966
Physical Description: 15 boxes 
Biography/History

Although NET's Development Office was not officially established until April 1, 1959, and the office of Vice President for Development came about even later, George L. Hall was functioning as a development officer as early as 1956. His activities are recorded in the Early Central File of the president's office and to a lesser extent in the files of the Vice President for Network Affairs.

As the title suggests, Development was charged with the responsibility of developing the financial resources of NET, including the generation of immediate short-term funds to offset the cost of program production, and the attraction of outside long-term endowment or investment funds to make NET financially secure and independent. “Outside” in this context meant other than Ford Foundation money.

In October, 1963, when NET dropped participation in radio and in television station activation in order to concentrate their resources more fully on quality programming, it was decided that the Development office would no longer seek funds for NET's “survival”; instead it was to seek funds to bring additional programs into the schedule. Armed with elaborate and often sophisticated proposals, as well as the statistics of the ETV viewing audience, development officers contacted industries, advertising agencies, foundations and agencies of the federal government to secure the funding for research and production of programs concerning special interest topics of importance to a larger audience. For example, the American Automobile Association might be approached for funds to support a program on safe driving. The research was often as important and costly as the actual production; often a company would underwrite the research into a problem, and then, if the results looked promising, would separately underwrite the production. Series or expensive programs might have a number of underwriters. The only credit the underwriter received, unlike sponsors in commercial television, was an announcement with the final credits of his financial support.

The office of Development was never completely successful, having to compete with the commercial networks and local ETV stations for the funding dollar; and as early as 1961, NET proposed to the Ford Foundation that a permanent endowment of $500 million be established in NET's behalf.

Scope and Content Note

As with many series, these files are fragmentary. For the period covered, however, they offer an adequate picture of the range of activities of the Development Office.

The files are composed of 60 per cent correspondence and 40 per cent reports, proposals, and an occasional script or script outline. They are arranged in three basic files: memoranda; a general correspondence and subject file; and underwriting correspondence. This was probably the arrangement employed by the office for development.

The memoranda are arranged according to the officer in development receiving them. They cover 1963-1966 and show how the development office functioned within NET. There is much that is routine, but almost nothing trivial. One finds here not just information about fund raising, but reactions to specific programs and program ideas from development and other NET personnel. There was much candor between departments over the quality and pertinence of prospective shows, and one sees the origin, critique and culmination of ideas.

Memos of unusual significance within this file include four to Winter D. Horton in 1966:

  • January 6 - Pointed critique of educational television from Edwin R. Bayley.
  • January 25- Possible program on hazards of smoking
  • June 15 - Problems of color production
  • September 23 - Lengthy report on Midwest trip in quest of underwriting.

The general correspondence and subject file contains correspondence, statistics, proposals, reports, and budget materials for 1959-1968. (Mainly 1962-66) Arranged alphabetically, most of the material relates to individual programs, specific underwriters, NET Film Service, and the Ford Foundation. As in the Memoranda File, internal NET operations are also revealed here, but the information is more pointed toward a specific program, subject or underwriter. One can see the progress of a program from an idea to actuality, from the development perspective.

In the folders kept and arranged by program, one can readily see the efforts made by Development in behalf of individual programs, often with several underwriters before achieving success. In addition to correspondence with underwriters and program prospectuses, there are many internal memos here too, documenting more fully and specifically what the Memoranda File indicated, namely Development's need for very close relationships with both Programming and Public Information in order to be aware of programming needs, to know prospective programs thoroughly in order to sell them to underwriters, and to gain additional help in the presentation of ideas about prospective programs. Occasionally, there is an unusual amount of outside correspondence with persons other than underwriters, as for example, reactions to “Dynamics of Desegregation 1960-63”, Box 4, Folder 12.

The underwriters correspondence covering the years 1957-66 is arranged alphabetically by underwriter with more than one firm or institution per folder and with the O-Z segment largely missing. The types of documents are basically the same as those contained in the program folders. However, one can see here the approach taken with a given underwriter over a number of months and years, rather than merely in behalf of a specific program. One can examine methods of approach and failures as well as successes. These files complement those arranged by program then, in documenting much more fully the actual process of fund raising. The failures often tell us more about NET than the successes, as to its rise and eventual demise.

Items of specific or singular interest in the general correspondence and subject file include:

  • The extensive file on ETV Audience Survey, which one would normally expect to find in the files of the Program Utilization Department.
  • Minutes of Board of Directors Meetings, 1960-66.
  • The folder on Children's Programming. One of few in entire collection.
  • Folder--“Development Office Reports” contains memo 8-2-1961, W. Kraetzer to J. White entitled, “Random Thoughts on The Development Office; Its Past, Present and Future.”
  • Ford Foundation--Basic Financing Proposal, box 2 folder 14, submitted by NETRC Sept. 1961. Excellent document containing statement of NETRC's purpose, accomplishments and future plans, along with request for $500 million permanent endowment.
  • Ford Foundation--Proposal for National Instructional Television Materials Service, box 2 folder 15, describes NET as the “natural home” for such a service and stresses need for quality and “other-than-local” programming.
  • NET Film Service, Inc. folders contain the number of bookings of some films July-Dec., 1959.
  • The Face of Sweden, box 7, folders 4 & 5, contains an unusually large amount of correspondence documenting the complex production and fundraising aspects of this program. Also includes some viewer reaction.
  • Program Suggestions, box 7, folder 12. This folder allows one to see what NET rejected as well as what they produced.
  • Requests for Promotional Films--box 8, folder 1-3 and box 7, folder 13. Films are “Knowledge and Ideas”, and “National Educational Television”. Requests are routine and repetitive, but serve as an indicator of interest in ETV. They include some reactions to the films.

Series: Series 4. Business Affairs, 1964-1966
Physical Description: 19 boxes 
Biography/History: Business affairs at NET have been conducted under the auspices of at least three offices, including: The Secretary-Treasurer, a position that appears to have been with NET from its inception; the administrator or manager of business affairs, also an initial position; and the comptroller, a position probably created some time during the 1960's. On at least two occasions the Vice-President for Administration also held the position of Secretary-Treasurer. Thus, the files of both Kenneth Yourd and Arthur M. Griffin as VP's for Administration also contain some information on their activities as Sec.-Treasurer.
Scope and Content Note

With the exception of the records described above, and an occasional document in the various other series, the sole files documenting business affairs activities at NET consist of nineteen archive boxes of computer printouts covering the years 1964-66 that appear to have been generated by the comptroller's office. The computer printouts are essentially a “balance sheet” for individual programs and series in Cultural Affairs and Public Affairs, showing the program's current financial (fiscal) status. Information listed includes amount budgeted for the program, additional credits, expenditures, and balance remaining in the program account. They are arranged in numerical order by their business affairs number, from CA 1 to CA 298, and PA 1 to PA 312, with over 200 numbers missing. The files also contain an occasional memo, press release, expenditure request, or cost report.

The files have not been weeded. The arrangement within folders is roughly chronological. These records are among the very few we have documenting explicit use of NET funds, detailed, broken down, showing both purpose and amount of spending for specific programs. The sources of funds and the rationale for giving them can be found in other files (e.g. Development, Program Subject File, Program Title File). These files should be retained until we have all the records of NET, and are more familiar with the extent and nature of financial information on NET. Then, or before if use demands it, they should be arranged more thoroughly and weeded. At that time, program titles could be added to the folders. Also, further information from the comptroller's office is needed to completely and intelligently evaluate the printouts.

Biography/History

National Educational Television became a reality at a time of intense activity in the world of broadcasting. With the support of the NAEB, the JCET was newly formed as was the National Citizens Committee for Educational Television (NCCET) under a 1952 FAE Grant. The NAEB viewed itself as the vanguard of and spokesman for educational broadcasting in the United States. Fresh from an increasingly successful 25 year campaign in behalf of educational broadcasting with the FCC, the public and the commercial networks, the NAEB had come to view NET as an overly ambitious upstart which was lapping up most of the readily available money, and whose steady growth usurped a steadily widening area of activity including much that had once been the sole purview of NAEB, JCET and the NCCET. Between 1952 and 1959 there was a growing antipathy between NAEB and NET. Without cooperation, conflict was inevitable; and, in fact, “much of the Center's story is the story of its domination over and assimilation of other organizations in the field.” (Wood, 137)

One predominant area of conflict in NET's always delicate and sometimes strained relations with the others concerned the activation of television stations. From its inception NET had employed a simplified concept of station relations and network affairs. At first, of course, there was no network, and few affairs, but there were affiliates. The Center staff was faced with relating to a station as soon as it became an affiliate, ascertaining its needs and problems, and defining ways and means to satisfy those needs. The story of those early relations with affiliates is documented in the station folders of the Program Subject File and in the Early Central File folders devoted to affiliates' meetings. As the number of NET's affiliates increased, so too did the need for a more formal procedure, and the Station Relations Department was organized in 1959.

At a meeting of the ETRC affiliates in 1958, they recommended that a station relations department be formed. Attached to the minutes of that meeting (Series 5B/1/1) are several quite valuable documents for understanding the origin and development of the station relations department. Copies of the briefer ones are also in the processing notes folder.

During the first twenty months of its existence, the work of the department of station relations fell into three areas: 1. Facilitating two-way communication and promoting better understanding between the stations and the Center; 2. Participating in improvement of Center operations, thereby increasing the effectiveness of both stations and the Center; and 3. Assisting affiliated stations (and potential future affiliates) to achieve strength and significance in their own communities. Among other things, the department implemented number one by the use of “Monday Morning Memos,” “Inside Channels” (the affiliate newsletter), and other paper communication, careful analysis of affiliate meetings, and well planned station visits; number two by increased use of videotape and support of NET prime time-- (i.e. simultaneous release of programs nationwide); and number three by encouraging exchange of information between the stations, studying ways to improve that exchange and by continued use of videotape grants.

NET was increasingly called upon to provide advice about a wider range of subjects, other than those related to program needs, namely the entire gamut of station activation, promotion and maintenance, including station health and financing, securing equipment, technical advice, advice on how to deal with government and handle legal affairs, and advice on how to promote viewer support and financial aid. NET did its best to meet all station needs, trying to be everything to everybody in educational television and a fourth area of activity was soon added to the list of responsibilities of the station relations department -- assisting groups and organizations in the activation of new educational stations. NET's actions in this regard stemmed in part from their belief that the other Washington agencies for assisting stations were growing weaker, and in part from the actual non-representation of the ETV stations in Washington.

In 1961 NET assumed responsibility for administration of those FAE activation grants that had not yet reached fulfillment. Later that year, NET opened a Washington office to help still the clamor for assistance from the potential stations that was increasing in intensity and was not being answered satisfactorily by any single organization. Modeled after suggestions of NET's affiliates and assuming the files, personnel and some of the functions of the JCET, the Washington office was headed by David C. Stewart, former executive director of the JCET. With a staff of three plus secretarial help, the Washington office was concerned with the reservation of channels and the activation of ETV stations. It furnished legal, engineering and other advice to groups planning ETV stations. It served as a source of information on channel allocations and the government, and served as the Center's (and thus the affiliates') liaison with federal agencies and professional organizations in education and broadcasting. It provided general and specific information to the public, the government and foreigners, petitioned the FCC in support of pro-ETV measures, and supported all pro-ETV legislation without actually engaging in direct lobbying. In short, it was NET's attempt to handle all ETV problems not directly connected with programming or affiliation with the Center through a separate office. New York would continue to provide the latter two.

At the same time as the Washington office was opened, NET created the position of Vice President for Network Affairs, appointing James Robertson to the post. Shortly thereafter, the position of Director of Station Relations (S.R.), which Robertson had held prior to his appointment, was eliminated, with the Station Relations Associates assigned to report directly to Robertson. Station Relations activities were reduced in scope with the Washington office responsible for much that S. R. had previously done. S. R. under Network Affairs concerned itself mainly with the program and information needs of the affiliates, with “servicing” the affiliates, and with interstation cooperation, looking toward the day when the “network” would really be a Network. Also, Robertson was responsible for the Technical Department and the Distribution Department, and he coordinated all Washington activities with NET's New York headquarters and with the Distribution and Technical operations in Ann Arbor, Michigan. [For a history of the Distribution Department see processing notes.]

Two years after NET moved to meet a need in the rapidly expanding world of educational television, it was forced by a number of factors to reassess its entire situation. Engaging in serious introspection under the leadership of John White, who had favored such a change since taking the helm in 1958, NET dropped participation in radio, instructional TV and station activation in order to devote their limited resources entirely to the production of quality programming for the educational television stations of America, a family of stations that had nearly become a fourth network by that time. The Washington office was abandoned to the staff of the Programming Department.

Such sweeping changes required corresponding changes in the department as well as the concept of Network Affairs at NET. Under Robertson's dynamic leadership the department concerned itself increasingly with the Network and with serving as the central link or liaison between the stations and all the departments at NET. Cooperating closely with Public Information, Distribution, Programming, and Central Administration, Network Affairs became the key department at NET. Robertson was helping to define and establish policy as well as implement it. At the same time, two new departments were created, assuming many of Station Relations' and Network Affairs' former responsibilities and freeing Robertson for the “loftier” implications of Network Affairs. As of October, 1963, reporting directly to the president were the Department of Program Operations, concerned with distribution and technical, and the Department of Field Services, concerned with station liaison, operation of flexible service, research, and utilization activities.

The JCET began in 1950 as an ad hoc committee with NAEB and the American Council on Education (ACE) backing, to arrange for educators to testify before the FCC in behalf of reserving television channels for educational use. These efforts are credited with making educational television a possibility. Upon completion of the FCC hearings, which ran from November, 1950 through January, 1951, the ad hoc committee was discontinued.

In April, 1951, the organization was reformed into a permanent Joint Committee on Educational Television with a grant of $90,000 from the FAE through a trustee organization, the American Council on Education. Six other groups joined the ACE in this endeavor, which now had a permanent, paid full-time staff. They were: The Association for Education by Radio-Television, the Association of Land-Grant Colleges and Universities, the NAEB, the National Association of State Universities, the National Council of Chief State School Officers, and the NEA of the United States.

The purpose of the JCET was to work with federal government agencies and with Congress to retain and widen education's hold on television channels. It also assisted educational institutions in planning for use of their channels and worked to convince educators of television's value in education.

In 1955 the organization's name was changed to the Joint Council on Educational Television to prepare for a broadening of its membership. The Ford Foundation assumed direct support of JCET since the FAE had redirected its own program efforts. By 1960, the Ford Foundation had withdrawn its support from a separate JCET and at that time, NET provided a $25,000 grant to continue JCET while discussion went on as to its future.

Finally, in 1961 when NET opened its Washington office, JCET reconstituted itself as the Joint Council on Educational Broadcasting (JCEB), extending its interests to the whole of educational broadcasting, but at the same time, narrowing its responsibility to formulating and enunciating policy. JCET's activities in station activation and in dealing with the Congress and federal agencies were assumed by NET. JCEB has continued as a policy formulating body for education in the broadcasting field, counting as members the same group that were in the JCET, plus NET. David Stewart, Director of NET's Washington office, also became the Secretary of the new JCEB. The JCEB hoped to build upon the extensive experience of JCET and continue to provide the chief forum for discussion and policy formation on national issues affecting all aspects of educational broadcasting.

Scope and Content Note

This series is the second largest and most complex within the NET collection. It reflects the complexity and importance of the departments and organizations concerned with “network affairs” during the years 1954-1966.

The series is arranged in two large files: the Washington office and VP for Network Affairs. The former includes the files NET inherited from the JCEB, the JCET, and from the FAE. The FAE grant files were not generated in the Washington office, but since they also concern station activation, it seemed appropriate to file them here.

[Quote from July, 1962 NET proposal to HEW for a Title VII grant to finance station establishment:

“The files in our Washington office are arranged by reserved channels and contain the entire past and present history of inquiries and efforts to activate each such channel, many dating back prior to the reservations themselves. NETRC is also the custodian of the files of the Fund for Adult Education's matching grants awarded to many ETV stations now on the air. These files provide much experience that may be useful as present-day efforts toward activation proceed. In addition, NETRC's current files hold correspondence from more than 60 communities where today there is interest in activation.”]

Sub-subseries 1: FAE Grant Proceedings, 1951-1961.
Scope and Content Note

This file is placed first in order because it documents the first NET-related effort at station activation through direct financing. JCET became a part of NET's history almost 10 years after FAE did, hence the order.

The FAE, using Ford Foundation money, existed to establish ETV stations with the stipulation that they provide programming to NET for distribution and that they be an outlet for NET programming. The influence of C. Scott Fletcher can be seen here. FAE also awarded grants directly to NAEB to produce radio programs using local stations' studios, equipment, and personnel.

The FAE was established in April 1951 and concluded operations on 30 June 1961, when NET took over the relationship with those local stations that had not completed the 8-year provision of their grant contract with FAE. Arranged alphabetically by state and thereunder by the name of the organization or city receiving the grant. The grant files contain the following types of documents: correspondence between FAE and local people responsible for ETV from pre-grant through transfer of title of equipment from FAE to local station; reports of FAE personnel on visits to local stations; conference proceedings of locally called meetings on ETV; local proposal to FAE; clippings; telegrams; proceedings of hearings before state legislatures on ETV; minutes of board and An. Gen. Mtgs. of local sponsoring body; also by-laws on some; reports on type of programs being offered locally; published studies on uses of ETV; 1958 NET questionnaire on content of local programming; local fund raising campaign brochures and pamphlets; formal agreement signed by local sponsoring body and FAE; lists of equipment requests and purchases made through FAE Grant; and floor plans and station plans.

Money from the grants were to be used only for purposes of equipping the ETV facility, and not to offset operating expenses. Therefore, a grant application was accepted by FAE only after it had been established that the station was a going concern and that most of the leg work had been done.

To obtain an FAE matching grant the station had to present an FCC construction permit, a certification of its non-profit, tax exempt status, and a detailed engineering report indicating specifically how the money was to be used. The station also had to match the amount of the grant 2 to 1 from local private sources. The station had to keep accurate books and records showing use of the proceeds and matching funds and they had to move with reasonable expedition toward applying the grant and matching funds toward the installation of a broadcasting station. If the station successfully broadcast for a period of three years subject to further conditions relative to the quality and nature of the programming supplied to the community, then, after an additional 5 year waiting period, they were given permanent title to the equipment they had been using.

These files are valuable for the picture they present of how a local ETV station got started, the problems it faced to keep going, the growth of the station, and its relevance in providing education of liberal character for adult population. The files also give a picture of how ETV grew nationally and how the FAE helped in this process through its grants and moral support.

Subseries: Subseries 5B. Vice President for Network Affairs: Records, 1954-1967.
Physical Description: 38 boxes 
Scope and Content Note

This series consists almost entirely of records generated by the Station Relations Department and the office of the VP for Network Affairs; however, there are also records from the department of Field Services. These records include correspondence, legal documents, printed reports, minutes of meetings, memos of Field Services and Station Relations, and promotional material from affiliated stations. They are organized into an alphabetical subject file.

[Note: The main reason that the files of the Station Relations and Field Services Departments were combined with the records of the VP for Network Affairs under the latter title is that they arrived at the archives hopelessly interspersed. Also, Robertson was successively the Director of Station Relations and VP for Network Affairs. The duties of those two and of Field Services as well were very similar.]

Among the more extensive records in this series are the records of affiliates' meetings, records regarding the FCC, foreign correspondence, station profiles--arranged by state and station call letters, information on over 70 affiliates, records regarding JCET-JCEB, the NAEB, and the NETRC Board of Directors. Numerous throughout are also the folders (1 to 5 each) relating to state and regional commissions, organizations and networks, all related to educational television or broadcasting, arranged under the name of state or organization.

Biography/History

The Office of Public Information was given the name Department of Public Information on Sept. 1, 1960, at which time Nazaret “Chic” Cherkezian was Director of Public Information. Earlier, during 1955-56, William A. Harper had been called Director of Information Services, which was also the title carried by Cherkezian's successor in 1966, Frederick A. Jacobi. The files contain some Harper-Jacobi information, but are primarily the output of the Cherkezian years.

The basic responsibilities of Public Information were publicity and promotion, falling into three areas of activity: advertising, publicity and information services. They worked with the affiliates, the press and the public, distributed the affiliate newsletter, Inside Channels, and published NET News for consumption by those outside of the ETV network as well as those inside. The department distributed basic information on every NET series, “special”, and “one shot” programs to each one of the affiliated stations. A typical package included the program breakdown (Individual Program Data), promotional slides and announcement copy, feature material, publicity photographs, and in many cases a news release. The director of this office reported to the executive assistant to the president as of June 1, 1961.

The department's annual report for that year stated: “The major function of this department is to service the Programming Department. Much of our time and creative effort is channeled into promotion for the Center's programming service. However, since we also serve as the public `voice' of the Center, we give high priority to Information Services. Promotion includes not only work with affiliates, that is, convincing them to run a program or series and helping them to promote it after they do reach a decision, but also publicity and advertising in general. Information services includes special previews, press conferences, etc...”

Scope and Content Note: The files that are described below comprise almost exclusively the publication and reference files of the Office of P. I. Despite P.I.'s increasingly closer relationship with NET's other departments, notably programming, Network Affairs and Distribution, these files contain almost no documentation of that working relationship.
Subseries: Awards
Scope and Content Note: This file, 1958-1963 (most 1960-61), concerns industry and professional awards that NET won, tried for, or was simply interested in. Both domestic and foreign awards are included. Among the more prestigious awards won by NET were an Emmy, Peabody, Sylvania and American Film Festival. It appears that Public Information was responsible for maintenance of the file, supplying answers to public requests about its contents and possibly helping with compilation of application for each award. Arranged by year and alphabetically thereunder. Most files contain correspondence, application forms, and printed information re: the award.

Subseries: Miscellaneous Unsorted Publications
Scope and Content Note: The miscellaneous unsorted publications consist of announcements of programs available to TV stations or ready for film distribution, pamphlets, papers and reprints of articles concerning ETV in general and NET as a fourth network, instructional television materials as well as a few copies of NET News. NET News was a quarterly publication with a circulation of about 15,000 in 1960. It was distributed to outsiders as well as affiliates. The Department of Public Information was responsible for its planning, creation and writing.
Subseries: Newsclips
Scope and Content Note: NET kept two well organized files of newsclippings, one chronologically and one by subject. Boxes 4b - 9 contain the subject file, arranged alphabetically, by the first word in the program title, including definite and indefinite articles. A few files relate to general subjects rather than a specific program such as “Intertel” and “CBS”. The subject clippings are extremely comprehensive but seem to cover only the years 1965-1968, whereas the chronological file, (boxes 10-17) covers 1957-1968 with, however, no clips for 1958. This file is an excellent beginning source for press reaction to NET. Missing, of course, are NET's early years, 1953-1956.

Subseries: Photographs
Scope and Content Note

The core of this file consisted of the large photograph file maintained by Public Information. Added to it during processing were all photographs found in the other NET Series. The bulk of the photos are production stills, but there are a few photos that were used for research. Arranged alphabetically by subject - either the program title or the name of the subject.

Usually, folder titles for those with multiple programs list merely inclusive titles, that is, beginning and ending. For a title that falls between the two, the researcher's only recourse is to check the folder itself.

Subseries: Press Releases
Scope and Content Note

Public Information worked jointly with almost all other departments in the publication of press releases and memos for wide distribution. Some releases were for affiliate consumption only, some only for the press and public and many for both affiliates and the press. Quite often, releases were prepared in packets or press kits, which the local stations drew upon in promoting the program in their area. The bulk of this file was created and maintained by P. I. but many releases were added during processing, by removal from other series if their volume warranted it and from a large shipment of releases from NET Film Service Inc., University of Indiana. Single releases found in other series were not transferred to this file.

Various types or titles of releases included here are: Individual Program Data, Information Services, Program Screening Report, Program Information, NET Film Service Special Releases, News From NET, Spot Copy, General Series Data, Preliminary Project Data Sheet, Program Availability Notice, and memos from Distribution, Field Services, Programming, and Station Relations. The degree of P. I.'s responsibility for the departmental memos is not clear but since they were a part of the file, they have been maintained that way.

The releases are arranged alphabetically by program title with folder titles and container list giving only inclusive titles. Releases pertaining to more than one program or to ETV in general are arranged first under “General Releases” by year. For the period they cover, 1959-1969, the releases are virtually complete, that is, they seem to have information on almost all programs and are thus an excellent source on incidental, non-production information about a program.

At the end of the Press Release file is a box of loose Program Preview Slides which were retained as samples. These slides were part of the press packets released to the local stations.

Series: Series 7. Research and Education Records, 1953-1968
Physical Description: 16 boxes 
Subseries: Subseries 7A. Director of Research and Education Records, 1953-1962
Biography/History: NET was concerned with research from its inception. It needed to know how audiences were receiving ETV and what their preferences were in order to insure greater success. During most of its existence, NET employed the services of Professor Wilbur Schramm and the Institute of Communication Studies at Stanford University. There was a time however, when they had an internal research unit, with Dr. Ryland W. Crary as Director of Education before becoming Director of Research in September 1958. His duties in both positions were probably identical, with only the name being changed.
Scope and Content Note

The files pertain to Crary's duties as Director of Education and Research and cover the years 1953-1962. The six boxes are arranged alphabetically according to subject and chronologically within each subject and/or folder. Their contents consist of final and preliminary research reports and material used to compile those reports, correspondence and reports regarding research grants to universities, which is the largest single category within these files, and correspondence with stations regarding research needs. In addition there are studies, surveys, analyses, lists of data, and publications, all related to ETV and its techniques, impact on the public, success, etc. Many of the studies and reports were compiled by universities and other organizations with NET grant money.

Removed from the file was a set of NAEB Factsheet, which was transferred to the NAEB collection, and carbon copies thereof, which were discarded.

Survey of Radio and Television Courses
Subseries: Subseries 7B. Program Utilization Records, 1957-1968.
Biography/History

Program utilization was a special aspect of education and research. The department was initiated and financed in part through an FAE grant which began in February 1961. At that time the department was apparently responsible to the VP for Network Affairs. From 1961 to 1965 Henry C. Alter was Director of Program Utilization; in 1965 the name was changed and Alter became Director of Educational Services, indicating a wider scope and focus to his position. The Department of Educational Services was abolished in July, 1970.

From the department's first annual report, dated September 1961, comes the following: “The rationale for a Department of Program Utilization was stated in the proposal to the Fund for Adult Education in October, 1960, as follows:

The time has come in the development of educational television where the mere performance of the broadcast function, however skillfully done, is not enough. Good educational practices demand more. One would hardly think of broadcasting to schools without relating the program to the material being studied in the classroom. Educators expect the television program to be integrated with other materials and with the teacher's conduct of the class session. Should we ask less of educational programs addressed to adults whose needs are as great and whose motivations are often stronger? Must adult education programs always be broadcast to unsuspecting and unattuned minds? The plant is built.... The logical next step, the imperative step, in the development of educational television is the utilization aspect. Here one re-examines the entire communications process--idea, substance, format, production values, transmission factors, receiving environment, viewer preparation, follow-up activities. Here one begins to realize educational goals.

The department has conducted its activities in three major areas: 1. Acquainting adult educators with opportunities inherent in cooperation with educational television. 2. Arranging activities in direct support of NET programs. 3. Working with publishers and others to create materials needed for multi-media programming. It worked with all types of educational institutions and (national-local) organizations promoting use of NET programs by groups on a planned basis thus adding to the size of the NET audience and increasing the impact of its programming.

Scope and Content Note

Three broad types of material comprise these files; 1. Correspondence with outside ETV and Adult Education organizations, including information syllabi on ETV courses; 2. The usual internal NET office records, viz. annual reports, staff papers, and reports, memos to and from staff and other departments, statistics, lists, etc; and 3. Utilization materials, plans for utilization, and requests for those materials from viewers, stations, universities and other organizations. Category three accounts for seven of the ten boxes.

Some materials were formed into utilization packets relating to specific programs and series, but the packets are not always complete in the archive. An especially complete file is The Age of Kings, called “best NET series ever.” (Wood, 496) Also noteworthy due to extensive information on them in other files are The Environmental Revolution, Population, and History of the Negro People.

Arrangement is an alphabetical subject file with viewer and institutional response letters separate and last under “Programs;” all chronological within folders.

The person most in evidence in the files besides Alter is Donley Fedderson, Director of Television Programming.

Vice President Hubert Humphrey 1965-1968
Series: Series 8. Programming Records, 1953-1968
Physical Description: 252 boxes 
Scope and Content Note

This series concerns NET's efforts to secure quality television programs during the years 1953-63, and the use made of some of those programs as well. The largest of the ten series, it includes a wide variety of document types, sch as correspondence--both inter-office and external--scripts and script outlines or treatments, reports of various kinds, and samples of the great many forms used by NET, the more important being expenditure request forms, and program evaluation forms. Wherever feasible, evaluation reports have been transferred to file at end of title file.

The series is broken down into eight sub-series, and more may be added as future additions to the records necessitate. The subseries include the Vice President for Programming (and/or Director of), the Program Subject File, the Program Title File (which includes a script file, a file of program evaluations and a file of shipping orders), and the Program Production Files: Cultural Programming, Public Affairs Programming, Science Programming, Children's Programming, and Intertel. As yet no records of Children's Programming have been added to the NET archives; the sub-series was reserved in the hope and the expectation that they will be forthcoming at a later date.

Robert Hudson looms as the central figure in NET programming during the period covered by the papers of this series. The existing documentation of his contributions is primarily contained in the early central file of Series 2, and in the program subject and title files. In reality, the latter two files may have been one programming central file. Along with the files of the directors of programming, after Hudson, they document the efforts--successful and unsuccessful— of NET to secure programming and the administration of the programming function at NET. In addition, they contain much information on the use of and demand for certain programs. The remaining sub-series, Cultural Programming through Intertel, are concerned primarily with the production of programs and only secondarily with procurement and routine aspects of administration in the respective departments in Programming. For the most part all production files are post-1963.

Besides Hudson, the program subject and title files show the contribution of literally dozens of different individuals. The NET practice of appointing program associates on a temporary basis under Newburn, explains the many names in evidence. They all used the central file, probably maintained by Hudson's secretary. In 1960 for example, there were six program associates besides Hudson and Fedderson, and we do not have extant separate files for any of them.

Series 8D-8H. Program Production File

In their attempt to provide high quality meaningful programming that both the local ETV stations and the viewing public would accept, the NET administration and programming staff tried several systems of program categorization. These systems also were used as a guideline or master plan in deciding which types of programs and which subjects to focus upon. In the beginning, the emphasis was upon adult education. Later, under the tutelage of H. K. Newburn, programming categories read like a college catalog division of subject areas, i.e. social sciences, fine arts, humanities, etc. Still later, in 1960, when NET was not yet producing any programs, they were attempting to acquire programs in six areas: humanities, fine arts, science, social science, public affairs and children's.

At least two of the four production categories for which we have files were initiated in October, 1963 when NET began to engage solely in the production of quality programming for television. The two were Cultural Programming (Series 8D) and Public Affairs Programming (Series 8E). The remaining two are Science programming (Series 8F) and Intertel (Series 8H). Children's Programming has been given the number 8G; however, there are not files in the archives as yet. See the Program Title File for folders on specific children's programs.

The production files contain the documentation for the actual development of a program, from its inception as an idea until its presentation as a public broadcast. Most of the files are rather fragmentary; in only a few can the full story be found. An illustration of one of the more complete production files is the one forUSA: Music--The Music Student, produced by Craig Gilbert, and found in the files of Curtis Davis, Director of Cultural Programming.

In that file are retained all the bills and invoices. The rationale for such action is:

  1. They are the most complete files for production of a program I have yet come across. In no other place in the collection can the researcher obtain the complete picture of everything that went into producing a television series or program, right down to the last detail such as the type of camera used, the kind and quantity of film used, the fact that the camera was rented and the cost of the rental, the number of outside people employed, cameramen, editors and others, and their cost.
  2. I have found ample evidence in other files, mainly those of NET's top administrative personnel that NET was very concerned about holding costs down. They were financed almost completely by the Ford Foundation throughout their twenty year existence. Periodically, a memo would go down through the ranks instructing the troops to refrain from taking a cab when a bus was available, and to refrain from entertaining outsiders too lavishly. These files document some of the very practices that the administration was trying to halt, and perhaps will help explain NET's eventual demise. These files also indicate the personnel relations problem that NET was faced with during much of its existence with the necessity to use outside producers. It appears that the outside producers did not hold expenses down as readily and consistently as NET producers did.
  3. Routine records do have value. Especially when they may be the only ones of their kind in existence. Collecting in the field of Mass Communications, including the records of Television and Radio production, is new enough that I question whether any other repository has preserved such files. Until we know the amount and nature of other files on television production, I think we have no choice but to retain these.
Subseries: Subseries 8A. Vice President for Programming (Director of Programming), 1961-1967
Scope and Content Note

As stated above, Robert Hudson's files as Director of Programming and as VP for Programming do not exist as a separate entity--at least not in the possession of SHSW. In 1959 Hudson was promoted from the post of Director of Programming to VP for Programming. Appointed as his assistant and given the title of Director of Programming was Donley Fedderson. Fedderson was replaced by William Kobin in 1964 when Hudson was given still another promotion to the position of Senior Vice President.

The records for this sub-series consist of a very small amount of Fedderson files (1961-1963) and some William Kobin files (1964-67).

Subseries: Subseries 8B. Program Subject File, 1953-1965
Scope and Content Note: This enormous file is composed almost entirely of correspondence, arranged alphabetically by correspondent. The program department corresponded with individuals, institutions, organizations, and government in their efforts to secure quality programs for educational tv stations during the years 1953-63. These files contain that correspondence, primarily for the pre-1963 years. Two large and significant segments of the file are the college and university folders and the station folders. Much of the early programming came from both universities and local stations. Other correspondents include prominent individuals, professional groups and societies, publishers, commercial and foreign broadcasters, societies and organizations dedicated to furthering either education, broadcasting or both, U. S. and foreign governments, the United Nations, film suppliers and distribution companies, film producers, etc.
