Author CURT SMITH -- a senior lecturer in English at the UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER and former speechwriter to President GEORGE H.W. BUSH -- has been named Political Coordinator of the MUSEUM OF BROADCAST COMMUNICATIONS (MBC).
"CURT SMITH was a gifted presidential speechwriter and is a widely recognized authority on radio and TV broadcasting," said museum founder/Pres. BRUCE DuMONT. "We look forward to our association, including his coordinating of several events crucial to the museum."
Smith will help coordinate the 75th anniversary salute to FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT on July 2, 2007 in CHICAGO. There, on that date in 1932, FDR accepted his first Democratic Party nomination for President and first proclaimed his "New Deal for the American people" in a nationwide network radio address.
