Papers of Ernest Pendrell, a journalist and maker of television documentaries. The bulk of the collection consists of shooting scripts, research, transcripts of interviews, films, financial records, and reviews relating to ABC News' "Scope" and "Directions" series and to a number of individual news specials aired by that network. Among the subjects treated are marijuana and drug abuse, abortion, race relations, the welfare system, violence in Northern Ireland, nuclear power, and the Vietnam conflict and the problems of the veterans of that era. Also present are script materials for "Guns of August" (Universal, 1964), a full-length documentary film about World War I; "Feeling Good," a PBS series on health; and files on several unproduced titles. Dramatic writings are less well represented, but include four plays and a script for "DuPont Show of the Week" (NBC).
