Abstract:

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.

Historical Note

Catherine (Cassie) Patricia Mackin was born 28 August 1939 in Baltimore, Maryland, to Francis and Catherine Mackin. Raised in Baltimore, she attended a local parochial school. Winning a four-year scholarship, she went to the Institute of Notre Dame before entering Washington College in 1956. A year later she transferred to the University of Maryland at College Park. While a student there, she worked for the now defunct Free State Press, a weekly paper published in suburban Washington, D.C. She graduated magna cum laude in June 1960 with a B.A. degree in English and minors in economics and history.

After graduation, Mackin obtained a position at the News American in Baltimore. Beginning as a general assignment reporter, she held a variety of positions before she left the paper in 1963. Between 1960 and 1962 she made guest appearances on both a Baltimore news panel show and on a morning variety show. From 1963 until 1969, Mackin was employed by the Hearst newspapers in their Washington Bureau. During the six years she worked for Hearst, she covered the Justice Department, numerous elections, and presidential campaigns, polishing the talents that would make her a successful national news correspondent.

In 1967, Mackin became one of the few women to receive a Neiman Fellowship to Harvard University where she studied the history of political institutions. Hired by NBC in 1969, she anchored a half hour newscast at WRC TV, the Washington affiliate of NBC, in addition to her reporting responsibilities. A tough minded and tenacious interviewer, Cassie Mackin received national attention three years later when she became NBC's first woman floor reporter at the Democratic and Republican presidential conventions. Her work contributed to the subsequent award of an Emmy to the NBC news team for its coverage. After a brief stint in Los Angeles, Mackin returned to Washington D.C., to become the Sunday evening anchor and congressional correspondent in 1974.

In September 1977, Mackin joined ABC as their Washington correspondent, temporarily covering the Senate. She also worked on a "20/20" story about drunk driving, for which she received another Emmy in 1981. Assigned to the 1980 presidential campaign, Mackin spent a good portion of the year following Senator Edward Kennedy around the country.

Mackin moved to Baltimore in October 198l to live with her sister, Margaret, after having a kidney removed in an effort to stop the spread of cancer. She appeared periodically on "This Week with David Brinkley" as part of a discussion group and updated her drunken driving report for "20/20", but succumbed to cancer on 20 November 1982 at the age of 43.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

Notes and articles on major political figures and events are prominent in the collection. The majority of the later material is on the 1972 presidential race and Senator Edward M. Kennedy's presidential campaign in 1980. Also included in the collection is an extensive file of articles written by Catherine Mackin, audio cassettes of speeches and interviews, video tapes of her broadcasts and numerous photographs.

Processing note:

When the Archives received the papers of Catherine Mackin, a preliminary inventory of the material showed the areas into which the collection fell and the series were developed accordingly. The files were then sorted and organized; paper clips, staples and duplicates removed; and the materials were placed in acid-free folders. All audio cassettes, video tapes, and photographs were removed and placed in separate series with a separation sheet marking their original location; these materials have been transferred to the tape and photographic collections respectively. All extraneous material was discarded. After the inventory was completed, the Archives returned several memorabilia items to the family in accordance with their wishes.
