Personal Award: H.T. Webster for “Unseen Audience”

(Honorable Mention) H.T. Webster, in his delightful cartoons entitled Unseen Audience sponsored by the Herald Tribune Syndicate, has produced each week and for a period of years the most economical, unanswerable, the most graphic and civilized criticism of radio. Again and again he has made us laugh at the preposterous extremes and incongruities to which radio occasionally commits itself. His drawings are very funny, and his case is made the more authentic by his skill in quoting radio’s own language. In recognition of all this as a worthwhile contribution to better broadcasting, this special George Foster Peabody Citation is hereby presented.
