“Invitation to Learning” Sessions

  • Marley Beach McMaster University


Invitation to Learning by Martin Grams, Jr. (Kearney, NE: OTR / Morris Publishing, 2002) lists a dozen appearances by Bertrand Russell in 1941–51. Of these, the texts of seven have yet to be found. Searches of the archives belonging to the programme’s various hosts and participants have been fruitless, as well as the promising radio collection at the Library of Congress. The show was rebroadcast locally from “transcription discs”, and some may still lie in local radio station archives or await discovery in private collections.
