I am a public radio producer working on a documentary for NPR about the 1950s radio series "This I Believe" which was hosted by Edward R. Murrow. So far, I have only found two archives that have accessible copies of any of these programs, which were originally issued to radio stations on  LP discs. The two places I have been dealing with to date are the National Archives and the archives at the University of Missouri at Kansas City. Between them, they have several, but not all of the programs in the series. I am trying to find them all (as well as any print material about them, but that is for another query on another list).
The good news is that these shows were released three times, once to domestic radio stations, once via the Voice of America, and once via Armed Forces Radio. Since over 200 stations aired the series domestically plus VOA and AFRS, I am hoping that there might be other copies out there. In particular, I am trying to find a program that featured Albert Einstein as guest. It is one of those that neither archive has in their holdings.
If anyone either has any of these discs (or tapes of discs) in their collections, or knows of anyone that might, please let me know. I would also be interested if anyone has a complete list of the shows in the series, regardless of whether you actually have the shows themselves. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
Happy Thanksgiving!
