Norman Lewis Corwin (born May 3, 1910) is an American writer,
screenwriter, producer, essayist and teacher of journalism and writing.
His earliest and biggest success was in the writing and directing of radio drama during the 1930s and 1940s.
Corwin was among the first producers to regularly use entertainment
—even light entertainment—to tackle serious social issues.
In this area he was a peer of Orson Welles and William N. Robson,
and an inspiration to other later radio/TV writers such as Rod Serling, Gene Roddenberry,
Norman Lear, J. Michael Straczynski and Yuri Rasovsky.
He is the son of Samuel and Rose Corwin and was born in Boston, Massachusetts.
Corwin was a major figure during the Golden Age of Radio. During the 1930s and 1940s he was a writer,
producer of many radio programs in many genres: history, biography, fantasy, fiction, poetry and drama.
He was the writer and creator of series such as The Columbia Workshop, 13 By Corwin, 26 By Corwin and others
We Hold These Truths was first broadcast in December 15, 1941, which aired just days after the attack on Pearl Harbor,
in honor of the 150th anniversary of the United States Bill of Rights.
Many radio and movie stars of the day featured, along with an epilogue by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
National Public Radio sponsored a new version of this program in 1991, for the Bill of Rights bicentennial.
His most famous work is On a Note of Triumph (with a cast headed by Orson Welles, James Stewart, and Lionel Barrymore),
a celebration of the Allied victory in Europe, first broadcast on VE Day, May 8, 1945.
We have added those 2 broadcasts to this collection.
