Records of the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), an organization of radio and television broadcasters in the United States (1922-). Although most NAB activities concern the establishment of broadcasting codes and support of the industry in matters relating to government regulation, the bulk of the collection pertains to the association's research function. The balance of the collection consists of files relating to the American Heritage Foundation's 1952 and 1956 Register and Vote promotion; John Meagher, NAB vice-president for radio, 1952-1955; a large group of broadcast editorials; and a file of miscellaneous publications. Included are materials on studies and surveys by the Broadcast Measurement Bureau, the National Opinion Research Center, the Television Allocations Study Organization, and the NAB itself.
