Collection Historical Note

During the last three years of her life, Eleanor Roosevelt hosted a television series entitled "Prospects of Mankind." The program was based at Brandeis University and was produced by National Educational Television, the forerunner of PBS. Henry Morgenthau III was at that time a producer for WGBH-TV, the Boston educational station as well as associate director of Brandeis University's Morse Communication Center. Mr. Morgenthau formulated the original proposal for the series and served as its executive producer.

The format for "Prospects of Mankind" was that of a colloquium, based on crucial national and international issues. Participants in these discussions during the three seasons included John F. Kennedy, Adlai Stevenson, Henry Kissinger and many other prominent world leaders.

The first program in the series was recorded the week of Mrs. Roosevelt's 75th birthday and the last season ended the summer of 1962, just a few months before her death on November 7th of that year.
