  • Papers of a creator, writer, and producer of television documentaries. Much of Salomon's collection focuses on World War II, either by means of his personal wartime correspondence; his participation in the preparation and writing of Samuel Eliot Morison's History of United States Naval Operations in World War II; or his involvement in the creation and production of Victory at Sea, an NBC television series based on the Navy's exploits during the war. Included are business and personal correspondence, research materials, correspondence and logs documenting his research activities during the war and in post-war Japan, scripts and clippings for Victory at Sea, a copy of the book adapted from the series and a promotional booklet from NBC, clippings and promotional booklets for Project XX (NBC), and biographical material including a film. Among the prominent correspondents are S. N. Behrman, Samuel Eliot Morison, Nathan M. Pusey, Robert W. Sarnoff, and Romney Wheeler.
