Catherine Mackin papers
Catherine Patricia Mackin (1939-1982) was a graduate of the University of Maryland at College Park and a pioneer woman journalist in television network broadcasting. In the early 1970's she anchored a WRC-TV (NBC) newscast and was NBC's first woman floor reporter at the Democratic and National Conventions in 1972. Her papers reflect her work as a political correspondent and reporter for the Hearst News Bureau, as well as two other television news networks. The collection includes notes and articles on major political figures and events and an extensive file of articles by Mackin, as well as audio tapes of speeches and interviews, and videotapes of her broadcasts. The majority of the later dated materials document the 1972 presidential race and Senator Edward M. Kennedy's presidential campaign in 1980.
