Papers of Edward P. Morgan, a journalist and news commentator for radio and television best known for his award-winning ABC news program Edward P. Morgan and the News. Annotated scripts for this program constitute the bulk of the collection, but there are also materials for other television programs for ABC and CBS and for PBL, an experimental program aired by the Public Broadcasting Laboratory. Also included are opening and closing messages which reflect the views of the AFL-CIO, Morgan's sponsor, and numerous recordings. Correspondence includes fan mail and letters from many prominent individuals which are of both personal and professional interest. Further documenting Morgan's career are notes and drafts of his book Clearing the Air; copies of his Newsday column “The Shape of the News”; and stories and related research for Collier's, United Press, the Chicago Daily News, and other journals and magazines. There are also several diaries which primarily relate to his coverage of World War II; many research files and notes; and other miscellaneous personal and biographical items.
