Television host Garry Moore (1915-1993) kept a personal collection of kinescopes from various programs he had a part in over the years. In 2006, his family donated those 12 reels to the Media Archives. The programs are primarily not entire shows, but short reels of portions of programs, compilations, gag reels, outtakes, and a home movie. These reels provide insight into what Garry Moore deemed important or amusing and worth keeping in his personal collection. The collection also includes the Edward R. Murrow "Person to Person" interview at the Moore home in February 1955.
Garry Moore was awarded a George Foster Peabody Award in 1970 for his work with Voice of America broadcasts.
The collection is currently restricted for preservation purposes, but portions can be made available upon request.
Thanks to Colorlab for work on preserving the reels, and to Dan Einstein of the UCLA Film & Television Archives for identification assistance.
