Abstract Charles Harvey Crutchfield was born in Hope, Ark., on 27 July 1912, grew up in Spartanburg, S.C., and matriculated at Wofford College for one year, 1929-1930. He began his career in broadcasting in 1929 as a radio announcer and worked at a number of radio stations before joining the staff of WBT in Charlotte, N.C., in 1933. Crutchfield held several positions at the station and at its parent company, retiring as president of the Jefferson-Pilot Broadcasting Company in 1977. Crutchfield had a decades-long friendship with the Reverend Billy Graham and was chiefly responsible for launching Graham's television presence. Following his retirement, Crutchfield founded his own consulting company, Media Communications, Inc., which was devoted to broadcasting issues, and was active with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the North Carolina Agency for Public Telecommunications, as well as in the larger broadcasting community and in professional and civic organizations. The collection traces the broadcasting career of Charles Harvey Crutchfield, beginning in the 1940s when he was program director and then general manager of radio station WBT and continuing until his retirement as president of the Jefferson-Pilot Broadcasting Company in 1977. The files consist primarily of correspondence, memoranda, clippings, and other materials relating to the Jefferson Standard Broadcasting Company in its various incarnations. Of particular interest are files addressing current events in the broadcasting community and Crutchfield's response, in the various capacities he held, to them. Topics covered include union organization efforts, Senate hearings regarding representation of affiliate stations in the national spot sales field, the expansion and growth of the Jefferson Standard Broadcasting Company, and the development of Community Antenna Television. Crutchfield's ardent anti-communist stance is reflected throughout these materials. Crutchfield corresponded regularly with Reverend Billy Graham and, later, with CBS News president Richard Salant and Frank Stanton, president of CBS Inc.; routine correspondence with national and local political figures is also included. There are also files, comprised chiefly of correspondence, reports, and clippings, that document Crutchfield's work with his consulting firm, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the North Carolina Agency for Public Telecommunications, and professional and civic organizations. Audiocassettes primarily contain interviews with Charles Crutchfield and WBT programs prepared in honor of various anniversaries celebrated by the station. A number of video tapes are recordings of obituaries of and tributes to Crutchfield. Films include "Weep for the Innocent" and footage of fired employees picketing WBT in the late 1940s.

Charles Harvey Crutchfield was born in Hope, Ark., on 27 July 1912, grew up in Spartanburg, S.C., and matriculated at Wofford College for one year, 1929-1930. He began his career in broadcasting in 1929 as an announcer with Spartanburg's first radio station and worked at a number of radio stations before joining the staff of WBT in Charlotte, N.C., in 1933. When Crutchfield joined the staff of WBT, it was owned by the Columbia Broadcasting System; this station was sold to Jefferson Standard Life Insurance Company, which expanded its interests in the broadcasting field, purchasing radio station WBTW of Florence, S.C., and television station WBTV, the first such station in the Carolinas, and creating a subsidiary company, Jefferson Standard Broadcasting Company. This company is now known as Jefferson-Pilot Communications Company, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Jefferson-Pilot Corporation. Crutchfield became program director of the station in 1935 and in 1945, following the sale of WBT to Jefferson Standard Life Insurance Company, became general manager of the station. Crutchfield had a decades-long friendship with the Reverend Billy Graham and was chiefly responsible for launching Graham's television presence. In 1965, Crutchfield became president of Jefferson Standard Broadcasting Company and remained in this position until his retirement in 1977. Following his retirement from the Jefferson-Pilot Broadcasting Company, Crutchfield founded his own consulting company, Media Communications, Inc., which was devoted to broadcasting issues. Crutchfield was nominated to the Board of Directors of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) in 1976 by President Gerald Ford, and remained active with the CPB for several years. He also served as the chair of the Board of Directors of the North Carolina Agency for Public Telecommunications (APT), which was started by Governor James B. Hunt Jr. in 1980.

Crutchfield was active in numerous professional and civic organizations, including a United States State Department appointment to assist in setting up the Greek radio network in 1951, serving as a representative of the United States broadcasting industry in a special mission to Russia in 1956, and visiting Radio Free Europe operations in Munich, Germany, in 1962. He was elected president of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce in 1971, received an honorary doctorate from Appalachian State University in 1973, and received the North Carolina Distinguished Citizen Award in 1977. Throughout his life, Crutchfield was an adamant anti-communist.

In 1931, Crutchfield married Jacqueline Williams of Miami, Fla., and they had two children, Richard and Leslie. He died in 1998.

Correspondence and other materials relating to the firing of ten engineers, allegedly for their involvement in union organizing. The IBEW initiated a boycott of companies advertising on radio station WBT by encouraging individuals to remit postcards to these companies indicating their reluctance to patronize companies which sanction such allegedly anti-union behavior. The sponsoring companies in turn forwarded the postcards to WBT, which recorded the names and addresses of the individuals who had remitted postcards, and sent them material rebutting the union's presentation of the situation. These records may be found in Oversize Papers OP-4022/1. A representative postcard has been retained.

Federal Communications Commission (FCC)-Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) Inquiry, 1957-1958 #04022, Series: "1. Professional Papers, 1942-2000." Box 9

The FCC issued a report recommending that "divisions of organizations which also operate networks should be prohibited from representing stations (other than their owned and operated stations) in the national spot sales field." It was alleged that CBS and National Broadcasting Company (NBC) Spot Sales restrained other station representatives in seeking the opportunity to represent CBS and NBC affiliates, restrained competition between network television advertising business and national spot television advertising business, and conspired to control rates. The issue of whether Jefferson Standard Broadcasting Company had any agreement or understanding with CBS with regard to the level of national spot rates of its television stations was addressed.

About 12,000 items.

Arrangement: chronological

Following his retirement from the Jefferson-Pilot Broadcasting Company (now Jefferson-Pilot Communications Company), Crutchfield founded his own consulting company, Media Communications, Inc., which was devoted to broadcasting issues. Crutchfield was nominated to the Board of Directors of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) in 1976 by President Gerald Ford and remained active with the CPB for several years. He also served as the chair of the Board of Directors of the North Carolina Agency for Public Telecommunications (APT), which was started by Governor James B. Hunt, Jr. in 1980. The files in this series are comprised chiefly of correspondence, reports, and clippings.

Bound transcript of Plaintiff General William C. Westmoreland's Memorandum of Law in Opposition to Defendant CBS's Motion to Dismiss and for Summary Judgement #04022, Series: "2. Post-Retirement Activities, 1978-1998." Box 108

On 23 January 1982, CBS aired a documentary entitled "The Uncounted Enemy: A Vietnam Deception" alleging that General William C. Westmoreland participated in a conspiracy to deceive the President, Congress, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the American public regarding the true size of the North Vietnamese Army. Westmoreland filed a $120 million libel suit against CBS in response.

American Values #04022, Series: "2. Post-Retirement Activities, 1978-1998." Box 108

American Values is the name of a project created in 1965 that was intended to "select, pool, catalog, and disseminate the best of the advertising industry's public service...for the benefit of all Americans" in response to a perceived drop in morality and increase in crime, drug use, and presence of "filth" in America and American media. Crutchfield was the founding chair of the venture, which never quite materialized and was revisited in the mid-1970s and again in the early 1980s. These files consist of correspondence, clippings, and printed materials.
