Series Description
"One of the most prominent series on the Municipal Broadcasting System's calendar of reporting and interpretation of the news, 'CAMPUS PRESS CONFERENCE' through the year of 1956 has maintained its tradition of making headlines through spontaneous and unrehearsed questioning of the men who make the news. WNYC's 'CAMPUS PRESS CONFERENCE' is unique in that it affords an unusual opportunity for talented college students to interview the prominent personalities on the New York scene. Appearing on the program this year have been student journalists from Brooklyn College, The College of the City of New York, the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, Fordham University, Hunter College and New York University. Moderator of the series is Marvin Sleeper, City Hall reporter for the New York Journal-American, who has won several awards for his outstanding coverage of the news."--accompanying letter.
