Description
Todd Hunter was a CBS radio and television figure in Hollywood in the mid-twentieth century. The collection includes a number of television play scripts and related materials (script sides, cue sheets, songs, notes). Though it is unclear whether Hunter authored any of the scripts, he was presumably involved in bringing them to television.
Background
Todd Hunter was a radio and television figure in Hollywood in the mid-twentieth century. He worked at CBS Radio and is presumably the same Todd Hunter who hosted the CBS "News and Rhythm" program with the Carl Hohengarten orchestra (and Tommy Bartlett as the announcer) in 1939. A 1942 issue of Billboard Magazine and a 1953 bulletin of the Association of American Colleges mention Todd Hunter as the host of a Chicago news show in the 1940s and a CBS newscast in the 1950s.
