The Pacific Story Radio Program

Background

The value of NBC's various educational programming initiatives of the 1930s and 1940s can't be underestimated. For their time, they were some of the most noble experiments in combining entertainment with education over Radio. The NBC University of The Air and NBC Inter-American University of The Air initiatives, in particular, were conceived and executed with the most noble and altruistic of intentions. And in all fairness to the Columbia Broadcasting System, both giant networks realized the importance of their highly influential positions in mass communication throughout the Golden Age of Radio.

CBS and NBC often went head-to-head with their purely commercial productions as well as with their programming in the public interest. In rare cases, during even the most noble of motivations, both networks experienced missteps due to their constant competition with each other. A case in point was the two competing Shakespeare revivals of 1937. Both networks determined to mount competing revivials of the works of the great bard, but in doing so, neither of them produced a production worthy of the material. Both Shakespeare Cycle (CBS) and Streamlined Shakespeare (NBC) suffered from being rushed into production without a great deal of forethought as to the effect on the ultimate productions. And though mounted with the finest talent--and the greatest of intentions, both productions had an Achilles' heel of one kind or another as a result--and both failed miserably at the hands of the public and critics alike.

From the mid-1930s forward, CBS had its various incarnations of what they referred to as 'experimental Radio'--cutting edge applications of the emerging technologies, broadcast techniques and more innovative writing of the era with which to 'experiment' over the powerful medium of broadcast Radio.

NBC for its part, established its NBC University of The Air as an informal initiative within the company as early as the mid-1920s, recognizing its remarkable opportunity--and obligation--to both entertain and educate with its growing power and reach as a communication medium. With the advent of America's involvement in World War II, NBC executives, in 1942, determined to formalize their NBC University of The Air into two chartered initiatives: NBC University of The Air and NBC Inter-American University of The Air. The former addressing domestic educational initiatives and the latter addressing the growing importance of the United Nations and international diplomacy.

Between 1942 and 1948, NBC University of the Air launched numerous initiatives in the domestic public interest, among which were:

  • 1944 Pursuit of Learning
  • 1944-48 The Worlds Great Novels
  • 1944-45 We Came This Way
  • 1945 The Story of Music
  • 1944-46 The Land of The Free
  • 1946 Featuring Our Families
  • 1946 Tales of The Foreign Service
  • 1947 American Novels

NBC concurrently aired numerous United Nations-oriented productions under the NBC University banner, as NBC Inter-American University of The Air initiatives, in the public interest as well as embracing the larger world community:

  • July 6, 1942 The Lands of The Free
  • October 10, 1942 Music of The New World
  • 1943 For This We Fight
  • 1943 Music of The New World
  • 1944 The Department of State Speaks
  • 1945 Our Foreign Policy
  • 1946 Your United Nations
  • 1946 Home Around The World
  • 1946 Concert of Nations
  • 1946 The Pacific Story [United Nations Series]

As a natural extension of NBC University of The Air, NBC also embarked on several NBC Presents and NBC Theater Presents network-sustained and sponsored initiatives upon reevaluating the success and acceptance of it's University of The Air intiatives of the 1940s. 1948 marked the year that NBC determined that the public was seeking accurate and informative programming, to be sure, but that much of the public audience of the post-War years was somewhat put off by the word 'University' in the titles of such programming. From that point forward, NBC's more prestigious, signature productions bore the "NBC Presents" title in one form or another.

The Pacific Story premieres as a 13-week feature

There's no question that the time was right for relating the story of World War II in the Pacific Theatre. As one of the last, ambitious undertakings of NBC's Inter-American University of The Air presentations, The Pacific Story set out to provide a thoroughly researched series of 'white papers' describing the history and geopolitical backdrop to The War in The Pacific. The initial order of thirteen installments framed the run up to War with Japan as indicated by their titles:

  • Japan's Dream of World Dominion
  • Alaska: America's New Frontier
  • Siberia: America's Nearest Asiatic Neighbor
  • The Old China
  • The New China
  • Japan's Gigantic Bluff
  • Monsoon Asia: The Geography Of Rice and Rain
  • Monsoon Asia: Adventurers and International Rivalry
  • India: From Clive To Gandhi
  • Islands of The Pacific
  • World War I In the Pacific
  • The Manchurian Incident and Its Sequel
  • World War II In the Pacific

Had the series progressed no further than those first thirteen installments, it would have stood as one of Radio's most comprehensive and scholarly backgrounders on the economics, politics, geography, and geopolitical dynamics of Japan's perceived need for expansion beyond the confines of its own territories.

Those first thirteen installments drew heavily on the extensive, first-hand background and experiences of Owen Lattimore, Pacific Director of the Overseas Branch of the Office of War information, who for two years served as political adviser to China's Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek.

Stars in Pacific Tale

Those fine Chinese characterizations
on the dramatic KFI story of the Pacific basin and its peoples 'The Pacific Story," are furnished by the screen actor who played the Japanese ambassador in "Mission to Moscow."
He is an American-born Chinese; Peter Chong, born in New Jersey. Although a native-born American, Chong was reared in the old Chinese tradition and custom. The fact that he is an expert on Chinese history gives further realism to his Pacific story roles.

OWEN LATTIMORE
HAS NO ROOM
OR COMPLAINT

Owen Lattimore, of KFI's "The
Pacific Story" series, is one American who doesn't complain about difficulties of today's warime transportation.
He once crossed the Gobi desert from China to Turkestan, a distance of 1600 miles—by camel.
Lattimore was the only white man on the journey, which took five and a half months.

Alfred D. Vosburgh was born in Chicago, Illinois. Moving to Hollywood in the early 1910s, Vosburgh soon found himself appearing in character roles in some of the earliest silent films of the 20th century.

From the April 19, 1925 Davenport Democrat and Leader:

Gayne Whitman
to Do Pictures

From the stage to pictures, then, to the stage and again back to pictures is the somewhat colored experience of Gayne Whitman, handsome young leading man, who has recently been signed by Warner Bros, to be featured in several of their forthcoming pictures.
For the last four years. Mr. Whitman has been leading man of the famous Morosco Theatre in Los Angeles and the Warners have had their eye on him. As soon as his contract was finished at the Morosco this season, the motion picture producers signed him for a term of years. Whitman is only following the footsteps of Douglas McLean, David Butler, Richard Dix, Warner Baxter and a score of others who have graduated from the Los Angeles playhouse to the screen.
Several years ago Whitman left the stage to become a member of the old Thomas Ince stock company at the time they were making one, two, and three reel features. He was later with Vitagraph supporting Corinne Griffith and other stars so that picture work is no novelty to him.
Warner Bros. intend to put him out in productions made from the best selling novels and plays.

In 1913 the Los Angeles Morosco Theatre (later the Globe) opened with weekly changes of plays, a new format for Broadway. By the late 20s Oliver Morosco lost control of the theatre to the Henry Duffy Players group. This is not to be confused with the Morsoco Theatre in New York. New York's Morosco Theatre opened February 5, 1917. It was owned by Lee and J.J. Shubert and given over to Oliver Morosco to manage as a reward for helping the Shuberts break the Charles Frohman-led Theatrical Trust. Morosco managed the house until 1924.

Alfred Vosburgh legally changed his name to Gayne Whitman during World War I, in response to the prejudice associated with German sounding surnames during the era.

On radio, Gayne Whitman played the title role in Chandu the Magician (1932), acting, directing and writing much of the series. He also wrote the screenplays for many of the Chandu The Magician films starring Edmund Lowe and Bela Lugosi.

During a Radio career spanning some 28 years, Gayne Whitman lent his voice and acting talent to virtually every genre of Radio drama imaginable. As he grew older, he began to appear more often as an announcer or narrator in Radio.

But Whitman's Film career was truly his most staggering accomplishment. Appearing in some 300 feature films and shorts, from the Silent era, to the 1960s, Gayne Whitman demonstrated a durability and versatility rarely matched in Film. Not only an actor, Whitman was also a prolific screenwriter and Radio writer. Whitman also directed several Stage plays and community theatre productions.

When Television beckoned, Gayne Whitman embarked on a third career as both dramatic actor and host/announcer/narrator for another ten successful years.

As remarkable a career as Gayne Whitman enjoyed, there remains all too little in the way of a worthy biography of this multi-faceted, multi-talented actor and his amazing career. We hope this article will spark further interest in this great actor's amazing contribution to the Performing Arts.
