Mike Wallace Online at the HRC

Before there was 60 Minutes, there was the The Mike Wallace Interview. Broadcast journalist Mike Wallace's interviews from the television program which ran for two seasons in 1957 and 1958, will be available online on the Web site for the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at The University of Texas at Austin.

You can now watch interviews with Mid-Century luminaries such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Salvador Dali and Steve Allen. The only downside is you have to download their Media Player to few these. Still, I'm going to wear that thing out. I can almost smell the cigarette smoke now.
