“University of Chicago Round Table of the Air” for Outstanding Educational Program





 1941 | NBC Radio (WMAQ)

Outstanding Educational Program: Many programs were considered in the field of education. The 1941 award goes unanimously to the University of Chicago Round Table of the Air, a program which, since its origin ten years ago, has been identified with station WMAQ, and for the excellence and spontaneity of which Judith Waller, Allen Miller, and Sherman Dryer are primarily responsible. In the days when it is no longer permissible to ad lib, it is well to remember a program which gave free expression to intelligent minds.
