Lowell Thomas...a reporter of the world


Before the likes of Brokaw, Cronkite, Murrow, Reasoner, Sawyer, etc., we had Lowell Thomas...reporter of the world via theater newsreels and radio.

Wikipedia said..."So varied were Thomas's activities that when it came time for the Library of Congress to catalog his memoirs they were forced to put them in "CT" ("biographies of subjects who do not fit into any other category") in their classification."

Lowell Thomas' last broadcast [May 14th, 1976]...
