Historical NoteReturn to Top

Milo Ryan was a professor in Communication at the University of Washington who gathered over 4,000 audio recordings (1939 – 1961) of CBS Radio News programs, public affairs shows, actualities, speeches, interviews, wartime dramas, daily World War II news updates.

The CBS Radio Network affiliate in Seattle, KIRO, began preserving and transcribing these recordings as the historical importance of the events unfolding around the world became apparent in the late 1930s. With a grant from the CBS Foundation, Ryan transferred these recordings to tape from 1957 to 1959, publishing his catalog History In Sound in 1963. Dr. Donald G. Godfrey published a second catalog in 1974, History In Sound: Part II.

The Milo Ryan Phonoarchive stands as the only comprehensive collection of 20th century CBS Radio News broadcasts.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Milo Ryan / CBS Radio News Phonoarchive is a unique audio time capsule that documents many historic 20th century events (1939 to 1961). It consists of sound recordings of CBS Radio News programs, public affairs shows, actualities, speeches, interviews, wartime dramas, daily World War II news updates. The recordings capture groundbreaking broadcasts by Edward R. Murrow and his "Boys": William L. Shirer, Eric Sevareid, Tom Grandin, Larry LeSueur, Charles Collingwood, Howard K. Smith, Winston Burdett, Bill Downs, Mary Marvin Breckinridge, Cecil Brown, and Richard C. Hottelet. The collection also includes recordings of programs and speeches made by public figures during and beyond WW II, including Churchill, Eisenhower, Einstein, Hitler, and JFK. As Dr. Donald Godfrey writes in his 1973 article "History Held a Microphone":

"There are twenty-two hundred and twenty-seven newscasts. All but a handful originating from CBS. Their newscasts represent every weekday without a miss, from September 7, 1939, with the Germans entering Poland, to April 2, 1945, with the allies entering Germany.... Tapes contain examples of special events coverage: the Japanese attack of Pearl Harbor, the bombing of Japan, landings in North Africa, the 13 Normandy Invasion, the World Security Conference, April, 1945, the function of the American and Russian Armies, April, 1945, the death and funeral of FDR, and miles of tape on V. E. and V.J. days. Elmer Davis' daily five minute reports are represented in entirety from his debut, September 16, 1939, to February 13, 1941, and occasionally to July 9, 1943. H. V. Kaltenbom edits the news, complete from August 27, 1939, until January 26, 1940, and sporadically thereafter. Our library includes 21 speeches by Winston Churchill, representing 12 hours of this master of language. There are 51 talks by President Roosevelt totaling 24 continuous hours."

A detailed description of most of the recordings in the Phonoarchive is available in Milo Ryan's book History in Sound (UW Press).
