The Mass Media and Culture collections in Special Collections and University Archives at the University of Maryland hold an assortment of archival collections pertaining to women's contributions to American radio and television. This exhibit offers a sampling of items drawn from those collections.
The exhibit provides a glimpse into the lives and careers of 16 American women who worked in broadcasting during its most crucial years of development and expansion in the mid-20th century. The diversity of these women's careers illuminate the ways women shaped the course of broadcasting history.
In 2003, a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities allowed the Libraries to preserve, organize, and make accessible to researchers a group of archival collections pertaining to women in broadcasting.
