Man’s Right to Knowledge





 1954 | CBS Radio

Based on Columbia University’s bicentennial theme, “Man’s right to knowledge and free use thereof,” this series, participated in by some of the world’s most distinguished scholars, stimulated a crusade for free inquiry and free expression—and helped to give to millions of individuals a deeper understanding of their rights to knowledge. The unprecedented impact of this series, at a critical period in history, resulted in extended coverage in the United States and throughout the world to be rebroadcast in many languages.
