Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of publications created in conjunction with the Educational Radio Project which created several educational radio series while providing employment for out-of-work writers and actors. Development of the project began in 1935 in association with the Civilian Conservation Corps and the United States, Works Progress Administration and some series continued through 1942. The project was administered by the United States, Office of Education. Many of the materials in this accession relate to "The World is Yours," a series broadcast by the National Broadcasting Company, Inc. radio network and produced in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution. Each half-hour program aired once a week on topics covering the entire range of the Smithsonian Institution's collections and research. The series featured the "Oldtimer" as the audience's guide to "the wonders of that unique establishment, the Smithsonian Institution -- dedicated to the increase and diffusion of knowledge." The program ran from June 1936 until May 1942. Other Educational Radio Project programs documented in this accession include "Answer Me This," a question and answer style program that often used traditional American songs, and "Interviews with the Past," six shows during which a historical figure arrives in the present to be interviewed by student reporters. Neither program was directly associated with the Smithsonian Institution. Materials include a manual for the production of educational radio programs, a script catalogue, educational supplements to "The World is Yours" with illustrated covers, and scripts for "Answer Me This" and "Interviews with the Past."

1981-1988

Scope and Contents:
This sub-series documents aspects of Carpenter's long professional collaboration and relationship with media theorist Marshall McLuhan. It includes Carpenter's reflections and memories of McLuhan's life, written after the latter's death (some of which is also detailed in sub-series 2.3 Memoir); various drafts and notes on the topics of media theory and mass communications; and press clippings and articles related to McLuhan's life and work, as well select articles and reviews written by McLuhan and a sound recording of a 1973 lecture by McLuhan entitled "Ideas."

Of special mention in this sub-series is an annotated copy of Understanding Media: A Report to the United States Office of Education from the National Association of Educational Broadcasters (1960) – otherwise titled Report on Project in Understanding New Media. This report is a curriculum created for the NAEB on media literacy, a precursor to McLuhan's seminal work Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man (1964). Also included in the sub-series are annotated copies of draft chapters from 1964's Understanding Media, sent to Carpenter for review.

Correspondence between Carpenter and McLuhan can be found in Series 3: Correspondence.
