Throwback Thursday: American Historical Documents Talking Book


Our object this week celebrates our nation’s independence.  In 1952, APH issued a four disc recording of American historical documents including the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States; Lincoln's First and Second Inaugural Addresses, the Gettysburg Address, George Washington's Valley Forge Letter, and Washington's Farewell Address.  It was narrated by Walter Gerard, a WHAS radio newsman in the late 1940s and early 1950s.  You can listen to the Declaration of Independence here.
