Farewell To Arms – August 6, 1948 – 61 Minutes

The full title of this series was actually, “NBC University of the Air”. The show was rather unusual as college students could actually get college credit by listening to the episodes (which were all classics) as part of correspondent courses. Many people may believe that college by correspondence is a late 20th century invention, but that’s not true! After World War II, there were millions of men with educational benefits who also had jobs and families. Correspondence courses were one way they could further their education!
