    PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF FRANK STANTON


    Frank Stanton served as the President of CBS between 1946 and 1971 and then Vice Chairman until 1973. Stanton organized the first televised presidential debate in American history. He served as the Chairman of the Rand Corporation from 1961 until 1967 and Chairman of the American Red Cross from 1973 to 1980. He also served as a Harvard Overseer and the Chairman of the Visiting Committee of Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government.
    Frank Stanton was also known for his keen sense of corporate style, that ranged from the standards he espoused as a broadcasting executive, to the design of everything from the company's current headquarters (Black Rock) to corporate stationery.
