Institutional Award: John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation
Winner 1990 | John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation

In reviewing literally thousands of hours of programming in the past few years, Peabody screening committees have made a remarkable discovery. Consistently, the best in American television is prefaced by the voice-over and graphic, “The following program is made possible by a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.” It is more than coincidence. Under the inspired leadership of the late William Kirby, the MacArthur Foundation has consistently supported inventive, inspired and important television, including many previous Peabody Award-winning programs. As funding sources continue to dwindle, the Peabody Board feels it crucial to recognize the vital role that philanthropic organizations play in maintaining quality television. At the top of the list is the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. For this, a Peabody Award.
