Hello,

I am researching the WNTA-TV era of the Mike Wallace Interview(s).

Is there a way that I can use the forum to ask "Lum Edwards" a question? Lum Edwards, are you out there?

Best regards,

R. Taylor

Dear Mike,

Thank you so much for saying hello! I really appreciate it. It sounds like you have a very wide knowledge of early television.

I am trying to locate a physical copy (ideally a kinoscope (?) 16mm print, 2" tape or even a 3/4" from a later copy) of the Mike Wallace interview with Rod Serling.

This interview was done on September 15, 1959 and back in 2008 you uploaded a file showing it in its full glory. I would be grateful to know if you might be able to help me source it or track down whatever physical copy still exists. Do you happen to know if an original print / tape is in an archive or personal collection nowadays?

Wallace also interviewed Lorraine Hansberry on May 8, 1959 for WNTA. I have never seen this interview and it was not aired. I wondered if you might have seen it. Either way, I am grateful for your help and hope you have a good day.

Kind regards,

Rebecca

Hiya Rebecca,

I'm afraid I am not going to be of much help. I got the Rod Serling interview in a trade years ago. it is the only Mike Wallace I have. I know a couple of people who might be able to help you more. May I forward your post to them.

Hi Mike,

Did you get a digital file of the Serling interview in the trade or did it include something nifty like a VHS or old tape format? If you are willing to chat with me offline about access to a tape - I would love to do so. Also, I would be happy to have you forward my post to the folks you know. Thanks!!

Rebecca

The posting headline above may get Lum Edwards attention. Or perhaps a note in the OTR section.

Mr, Edwards,
Did you see the above posting? And while we are at it. Thank you for all the work you have done here.

And rtaylor14AP , there is a way to determine the original up-loaders email address, but for safety's sake I will not state it here.
