In June of 2018, the AHC partnered with Wyoming Public Media to create “Archives on the Air,” a one minute look ‘behind the curtain’ of our archives. Each episode reveals a fun tidbit of history from our vault. The series is voiced by Assistant Archivist Molly Marcusse and to date we’ve aired over 100 episodes.
Ironically enough, WPM actually archives our show on their website, so we thought we’d go back to highlight some for you in a new blog series, aptly titled “Archives Rewind.”
So without further ado, let’s rewind the archives…
Episode 1: Laramie Inventor Elmer Lovejoy
Local Laramie folks may be familiar with the name Elmer Lovejoy, but what they may not know is that he designed and built Wyoming’s first automobile in 1895.
Episode 7: Mary O’Hara—”My Heart Is In Wyoming”
How well could New York screenwriter socialite adjust to life in Wyoming? Once she arrived, not even wild horses could drag her away.
Episode 10: Antelope Charlie
Why in the world did the pronghorn get loaded onto the Hindenburg in 1936?
Episode 15: Brassy Barbara Stanwyck
Why did Barbara Stanwyck’s movie “Baby Face” get banned in several cities across the country?
That wraps up our first round of our archives rewind. Stayed tuned in the coming weeks for more!
“Archives on the Air” can be heard on Wyoming Public Radio Monday through Friday at 8:50 am, 11:50 am, and 6:50 pm or online on Wyoming Public Media’s website.
