Abstract:

Fran Harris-Tuchman (1915- ) began her broadcasting career as a pioneering member of the all-female WATTS group who kept what is now WLS-TV on the air throughout the second world war. She later went on to be the first woman to head a television division for a major advertising agency and to found her own highly successful ad agency, Harris-Tuchman Productions. The majority of the collection consists of client files from Mrs. Harris-Tuchman's production company and production elements.
