Hesseltine, William Best, 1902-1963 "Clifford L. Lord: an appreciation"

Clifford L. Lord, An Appreciation: This brief tribute reviews the accomplishments of Clifford Lord (1912-1980), Society director from 1946 to 1958. It describes his personality and work style, as well as reviewing the successful programs he started. Those innovations included energetic collecting of mass communications (journalism, broadcasting, advertising, and public relations) and labor manuscripts, the acquisition of the massive McCormick-International Harvester Collection, a program of historic sites, outreach to school children through the "Junior Historian" program and a "Historymobile" and wider use of television and radio.
