Scope and Contents
The papers of Noran Kersta span the years of 1935-1966. The majority of the papers are Kersta's personal correspondence within the period of 1945-1955. There are some reports, managerial procedures and some photographs within the collection. In addition, there are some personal clippings and articles that Kersta kept either because of personal interest in the content or because he wrote them or is mentioned in the article. The collection is particularly important because of the information it provides about the early development of television prior to World War II. Items of particular note are the WNBT schedule rate cards.
