University of Texas getting Cronkite's papers
Press Release

November, 2009

AUSTIN, Texas — A University of Texas official says Walter Cronkite's papers and photographs will be permanently housed at the Austin campus and then exhibited in May.

Don Carleton, director of the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History Center, told The Daily Texan student newspaper that the papers are the "most influential documents in the history of broadcast journalism."

The center already has most of Cronkite's papers stored in its archives, including all of his reporter's notebooks from his 1968 tour through Vietnam.

Cronkite wrote for the student newspaper before dropping out of the University of Texas in 1935 in his junior year.
