Edward R. Murrow is widely regarded as one of the most important American journalists of the 20th century, and his work continues to inspire new generations entering the field. The Morrow Center at Tufts University has created this online exhibit that contains a detailed timeline of his life, and is accompanied by magazine covers, personal correspondence, and other historical items. Visitors can make their way through his "Professional Timeline", which is divided into sections that tell of Morrow's time as a student at the Washington State College (now University), CBS, and the United States Information Agency (USIA). On the left-hand side of the homepage, visitors can learn about Murrow's wife, Janet Brewster Murrow, and her own career as a journalist. For those looking to do more research on Murrow, the site also offers a collection guide to the Murrow materials held by Tufts University.
