Primary Sources: What Can We Do?

return to primary sources  

Following the June 1963 broadcast of WGBH's "The Negro and the American Promise" on public television, a viewer from the Federal Communications Commission, which regulates the airwaves, sent his compliments to producer Henry Morganthau III.

Federal Communications Commission Washington 25, D.C.

June 25, 1963

In reply refer to: 8900

Mr. Henry Morganthau III
Station W G B H-TV
238 Main Street
Cambridge 42, Massachusetts

Dear Henry:

I watched that interview program of yours last night and thought it was one of the best programs of its kind I'd ever seen.

The best compliment, tho, was the reaction of my son (age 15) and his friend: "What can we do to help?"

Best regards,
Hy Golden
