Description

Peg Lynch is a pioneer radio and television comedian and writer noted for writing and starring in in "Ethel and Albert," one of the first TV "sitcoms." The Peg Lynch Papers (http://nwda.orbiscascade.org/ark:/80444/xv37635) are included in Special Collections and University Archives, and comprise original scripts, audio recordings, and original films of the TV show. The clip here is a preliminary oral history interview conducted in April 2013 during which she talks of working with Margaret Hamilton, the actor who played the "Wicked Witch of the West" in The Wizard of Oz. SCUA staff plan to return to Massachusetts where Ms. Lynch lives to conduct a formal full-length oral history interview during which they can capture many more interesting stories of radio and TV history!
