Records, mainly 1950-1970, of the National Association of Educational Broadcasters (NAEB), an association of educational broadcasters and public broadcasting stations. The NAEB traced its origins to the formation of the Association of College and University Broadcasting Stations in 1925. The largest part of the collection is a subject file which documents the NAEB's board of directors, committees, conventions, conferences, seminars, and workshops; the development of the Educational Television Facilities Act of 1962; projects funded through Title VII of the National Defense Education Act of 1958; a curriculum development project directed by Marshall McLuhan; programming material on such offerings as the series “Jeffersonian Heritage”; and files on the National Educational Television and Radio Center, the Fund for Adult Education, the Joint Committee on Educational Television, and other organizations and foundations interested in educational broadcasting. The NAEB disbanded in 1981.
