Bibliographical/Historical Note

The Indiana School of the Sky radio program was created by the Indiana University Department of Radio and Television. Between 1947 and the early 1960s, Indiana University's School of the Sky, in cooperation with regional radio stations and the Indiana Department of Education, broadcasted educational programs to thousands of classrooms in Indiana and nearby states during each school day. Each program aired on a different day of the school week for fifteen minutes and were performed by Indiana University students and eventually reached listeners across the country. The success of the program and its growth lead to new course offerings in radio and television at IU and an advanced radio broadcasting station at the university.
