Martha Brooks Papers
Martha Brooks (1908-1999) was a legendary New York broadcaster whose "Martha Brooks Show" aired over WGY-Radio Schenectady from 1937 to 1971. Originally an actress, Ms. Brooks (nee Irma Lemke) began with pioneering radio station WGY in 1931. Later, Ms. Brooks became a TV pioneer, on WGY's sister station, WRGB-TV by writing, producing and often starring in live, on-air productions. The Martha Brooks Papers spans the years 1924 to 1991 and consists mainly of photos from many of the early TV productions on which Ms. Brooks starred (and sometimes wrote).
