KLRU-TEMP Videotape Collection

The KLRU-TEMP [Texas Educational Media Program] initiative was a collaboration between Walter Prescott Webb and Joe Frantz of the University of Texas Department of History and the Radio/Television Department, who did all the production work. The basic idea was to bring to Austin all the greatest names in various fields of American history and tape them in two or three 30-minute lectures that could then be used in classes at UT and other Texas schools.

Woodward gives a personal account of his beginnings in provincial Arkansas and early hesitance to focus his work on Southern history, critiquing historical relativism along the way. He cites three inspirations for becoming a Southern historian: William Faulkner and creative writers of the 1930s Southern Renaissance, Walter Prescott Webb, and ignorance about the South that he encountered in his travels.

Slight RF noise in the picture, recorded into program, example at 00:17:10. The program was recorded with wide horizontal blanking, causing black bars to the sides of the picture. There is a little tearing on the teachers hands and collar, as recorded. There is break up at the edit points at the top and end of program, on the theme song and slide.
