Papers of Harold Engel, an educational broadcaster associated with WHA and WHA-TV, Madison, Wisconsin (1931-1968), as assistant director in charge of legislative and public relations. The collection deals exclusively with educational broadcasting and contains articles, clippings, surveys, and reports. Most documentation concerns the development of WHA, particularly its early history; Malcolm P. Hanson, Harold B.

The balance deals with Engel's other activities in educational broadcasting through the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association, National Association of FM Broadcasters, the University of Wisconsin Radio and Television Committee, and with other Wisconsin educational stations such as WMVS, WLBL, and WUMW-TV. Prominent correspondents include August Derleth and Hans V. Kaltenborn.
