JFK Fifty Years Later--Were any QuadList members working in TV that day?--Have you handled any materials from then?

It seems hard to believe that the television coverage that had many of us riveted to the screen happened 50 years ago.

Some folks on the list could have been working in network or local broadcast settings on that day, and it would be great to learn more about what they did—and thought—as they were doing their jobs.

I know that QuadList member, Harold Deppe, Sr. was at CBS in NYC at the time.  

Although not in Videotape, Harold Sr. would have had a unique view of how the network handled the day and those that followed.  (I think this would have been from the Grand Central Station facilities, since the Broadcast Center on W. 57th St. had a 1964 debut.  Clarifications about what happened from where would be good.)

Perhaps there are others that you know of who are still able to recall details?

If you've handled JFK materials, it would be interesting to know what you observed as you played them, such as technical considerations and logistics of the times.

If any of the materials you've transferred are airing in productions to be seen over the next few days, or are available on-line, please include links.

Thanks,

Ted Langdell
