Peabody Symposium: “Television History, the Peabody Archives, and Cultural Memory”

The Peabody Archives is a unique collection of media history, housing over 90,000 programs submitted to the Peabody Awards since its inception in 1941. What makes the collection exceptional is the breadth of stories through which their contributors have made a claim for historical significance. Items from local broadcasters, in particular, carry special value due to their rareness (Peabody houses the only remaining copies), as well as the fact that local broadcasters were much more active in telling local stories through original programming several decades ago.
