RADIO PROGRAMS OF SCIENCE SERVICE - "ADVENTURES IN SCIENCE" AND "SCIENCE NEWS OF THE WEEK," 1935-1958.

Type:
Archival materials
Note:
This series consists of scripts, correspondence, and other material relating to Science Service radio programs on the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS), 1935-1958, and other Science Service broadcasting activities. Folders often contain both draft and final scripts together with correspondence and background material. For audio recordings see Series 20: "Adventures In Science" Recordings, 1951-1959.

Beginning in the 1920s, Science Service staff wrote 15-minute radio scripts ("Science Service Talks" and "Science News of the Week") which were mailed every week to several dozen U.S. radio stations and then read on the air by local announcers or scientists. By the early 1930s, they were also producing a weekly live-broadcast program for CBS, which eventually featured interviews of scientists. CBS and Science Service renamed these programs "Adventures in Science" beginning with the May 6, 1938, broadcast. Between May 6 and September 30, 1938, CBS controlled all writing and production and CBS staff member Paul Woodbridge hosted the program until it was cancelled September 30, 1938. "Adventures in Science" resumed as a weekly program on CBS on January 5, 1939, with a format of brief news bulletins followed by an interview conducted by Watson Davis. Programs were suspended during World War II and during football seasons in the 1940s and early 1950s. CBS cancelled "Adventures in Science" in December 1958.

Series 10 contains primarily records for "Science News of the Week," 1935-1938, and "Adventures in Science," 1938-1958. There are also scripts for other radio programs on which Watson Davis appeared.

During the 1930s and 1940s, listeners could request either a copy of the script or a special supplementary bulletin. Box 388 contains almost a complete set of mimeographed scripts and bulletins for the broadcasts in 1939 and 1940. Individual broadcast folders in other boxes may contain an annotated script ("as delivered") with any changes made immediately before or during the broadcast. By the 1950s, interviews were ad-libbed and no formal script was prepared beforehand.

Files also contain correspondence from CBS employees such as Lyman Bryson, Sterling Fisher, Leon Levine, Helen J. Sioussant, and Paul Woodbridge.

Series 10 remains in the order the files were received upon transfer to the Smithsonian Institution Archives. Folders, especially for the later broadcasts, are therefore not necessarily in chronological order. A few folders contain material related to cancelled or planned broadcasts. The finding aid lists the broadcast date, guest(s), and either the program title or general topic.

Extent:

Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1964-1976
Scope and Contents note:
These records are arranged chronologically. Most of them deal with the reorganization of Anthropology at the Smithsonian Institution when Ethnology and Anthropology were merged into the Smithsonian Office for Anthropological Research in 1964. A copy of the guidelines for the reorganization and the minutes at which these proposals for the new structure were discussed are among these papers. The merger resulted in the search for a new leader. The "Leader search" folder includes curricula vitae, evaluations, lists of publications, and letters of recommendations for candidates for this position. Some of the correspondence deals with a controversial offer made to A. Hoebel. One of the letters is a draft of a letter Senator Hubert Humphrey sent to Dillon Rpley in support of Hoebel's candidacy. The Oral History Interview is a transcript of an interview with Riesenberg conducted in 1975 in which he describes the formation of the Senate of Scientists at the Smithsonian.

Scope and Contents:
Reimar continues discussing problems with glue, [3:17]. Did Reimar ask any of his former employees from wartime Horten workshops to join him in Argentina? No, for them, inflation and cost of living too high…[7:00] scientists and engineers paid well, less skilled labor paid low wages, [7:33] laborers about 200 pesos per month, draftsmen about 400, engineers 6-800, Reimar 2,700 per month, Reimar talks about difficulties to design and manufacturer complex components. [11:47] Reimar on the sailplane that competed in 1952 world meet in Spain [I. Ae. 34m], 1 survived to 1986 but only good for museum – not flyable. [14:03] Fate of Pulqui II sailplane prototypes, [16:00] Pulqui II details top secret, Sanders got year-and-a-half in prison for having a small drawing as he went through customs. [18:17] Flight test results – Pulqui II glider, Behrens test pilot: 1st flight, "rudder is impossible … aileron" very difficult. Modifications incorporated into 2nd Pulqui II sailplane, new tail, fin and rudder, aileron control …other problems with Pulqui II [to 26:28]; Reimar blamed for failure of Pulqui II. Tank flew sailplane but he did not stall the aircraft. Reimar arrived in Argentina 10 May 1948 [31:59] and first Pulqui II sailplane flew end of August, [33:00] why two Pulqui II sailplanes required. [35:11] Why use skid gear instead of more conventional (and complex) landing gear on these sailplanes? [39:50] Tank refused to change Pulqui II design as Reimar advised, because Argentine officials already had models of the aircraft that showed design details. [43:37] Who measured Pulqui II design in Cordoba wind tunnel, Buford (sp?) repaired tunnel, improved operation. [47:00] Tank would not accept Reimar's recommendations to improve Pulqui II, Reimar left Tank in 1949. [50:45] Reimar wanted more taper and twist for the wing, other solutions to Pulqui II problems difficult for Tank for various reasons. [51:51] Northrop B-49 had fixed slots with laminar profile wingtips – Reimar: how can you have good laminar flow with the airflow disturbed by the slots? [55:31] Who ordered Pulqui II project terminated? [56:30] Reimar on inferior engines installed in Argentine transport aircraft, used in Ju 52 that Reimar used to tow delta glider, tow plane has engine failure and force-lands in soccer stadium, lucky no injuries.
