Series Description
"Vital issues affecting New Yorkers are brought before the public by WNYC, through an unrehearsed radio press conference whereby various personalities in the news are interviewed, and given the opportunity of presenting their views. During the summer of 1957 when there was a rash of juvenile crimes and a resultant clamor for a teen-age curfew in the city, 'Campus Press Conference' presented a program with Ralph W. Whelan, Director of the New York City Youth Board, who definitely opposed the idea of a curfew, and presented a blueprint for community action to solve the problem of juvenile delinquency. This broadcast did much to alleviate the mounting hysteria of the public and stir citizen action to a constructive plan for combatting this major problem. Similarly, other major issues such as the question of fluoridation, the increased rate of drug addiction, the problem of pedestrian safety, and other problems affecting the public [have been presented.]"--1957 Peabody Awards entry form.
