Institutional Award: Xerox Corporation for Television Contribution to International Understanding
The search for a program which achieves distinction in the promotion of international understanding is sometimes difficult. But in 1965 there could be no question that the Peabody Award in this field should be bestowed upon Xerox Corporation and accepted by Joseph C. Wilson, its president. To have presented programs which were as different and as appealing as The Making of the President – 1964, Let My People Go, The Louvre, and the illuminating series on the United Nations, is an achievement which does great credit to this intelligent company. It is also a revelation of the peaceful future to which its management aspires. In recognition, a Peabody Award.
