Mass Communications History Collections

The Mass Communications History Collections were established in 1955 to document the importance of the mass media in 20th-century American life. The collections include the papers of hundreds of important individuals, corporations and professional organizations in the fields of journalism, broadcasting, advertising and public relations. These collections document mass communications on both the national level and in the state of Wisconsin. Our holdings include the records and papers of the National Broadcasting Company (NBC); Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communications; Foote, Cone & Belding; Bruce Barton; John W. Hill; National Educational Television; David Brinkley; Charles Collingwood; Joseph Harsch; H.V. Kaltenborn; Clark Mollenhoff; Howard K. Smith; more than 30 Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists; and many other individuals and organizations.
