Personal Award: Dr. James R. Killian Jr. for Broadcasting Education

As Chairman of the Carnegie Commission on Educational Television, he led his distinguished colleagues and staff in a searching study of the medium, with exceptionally thoughtful recommendations for an effective course of action.

Dr. Killian exemplifies the significant role a citizen can play in improving his community and nation, and deepens one’s faith in the democratic process.
