Edward R. Murrow

a.k.a. Egbert Roscoe Murrow

Author Code: AERM

Born: Apr. 25, 1908 - Guildford County, North Carolina, USA

Died: Apr. 27, 1965 - Pawling, New York, USA

Educated at Washington State College, Murrow graduated in 1930. He had changed his named from Egbert to Edward during the 1920s. Murrow was highly active in college politics and was elected president of the National Student Federation of America. From 1932 to 1935 he was the assistant director of the Institute of International Education. During this time he also served as assistant secretary of the Emergency Committee in Aid of Displaced Foreign Scholars. In 1935, Murrow joined CBS as director of talks and education and would continue with them for the remainder of his career. He teamed up with William L. Shirer to form probably the best broadcast journalist team of all time. They covered the 1938 Austrian Anschluss with Murrow reporting live from Vienna. After the outbreak of war, Murrow was based in London and reported on the Blitz in his London After Dark program. His catchphrase 'Good Night and Good Luck', became famous throughout the world. He returned to America in 1941 only a week before the attack on Pearl Harbor. He later returned to Europe and flew on some 25 combat missions and put together a team of broadcasters unsurpassed in news reporting including some that would become household names in their own right such as Howard K. Smith, Eric Sevareid and Wilson Burdett. Murrow reported from Buchenwald concentration camp at the close of the war and made his final London broadcast in 1946. After a short stint as V.P. of CBS News, Murrow returned to broadcasting and, during the 1950s, moved on to television, hosting various programs such asThis I Believe and See It Now. During the McCarthy witch hunts Murrow produced A Report on Senator Joseph McCarthy, which contributed to McCarthy's fall from grace and put an end to the 'Red Scare'. Murrow's reporting often landed him in trouble with CBS management and finally led to his resignation in 1961. President Kennedy appointed Murrow head of the U.S. Information Agency in January of that year. He was later asked by President Johnson to stay on after the Kennedy assassination, but by 1964, his own failing health led to his resignation. A chain smoker for most of his adult life, Murrow died from advanced lung cancer at the age of 57. During his life, Murrow received numerous awards and accolades including the Peabody Award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, an OBE and a Grammy Award.
