Look Before You Vote: Televising the Presidential Conventions

Sun, Jul 26 1:30 pm - 2:15 pm Free

It’s an election year, and election years mean political conventions! The first political convention was broadcast on the radio in 1924, and the first televised convention took place in 1940, when television was still in its infancy. Join the Sarnoff Collection for a Zoom discussion about the history of broadcasting the presidential conventions, and the cool technologies that were invented to cover those technologically challenging events.
