Indiana School of the Sky

Indiana School of the Sky

Production began in 1947 of the Indiana School of the Sky, a series of educational radio dramas broadcast for elementary, junior high, and high school students in Indiana and neighboring states. In 1953, the International Broadcasting Union proclaimed this series “one of the most valuable contributions of the American radio in the cultural field,” and historian Thomas D. Clark has characterized it as the university’s greatest public service to that point in its history.

MDPI has recently digitized sound recordings of Indiana School of the Sky, which you can listen to now through Media Collections Online.
