Series IX. Allegheny Roundtable, 1948-1970

Scope and Content Notes:

In the late 1940s John C. Weaver help found the Allegheny Roundtable, a panel discussion program that aired on WQED radio and later became a WQED television program. The Allegheny Roundtable resembled the Hungry Club, as it was a forum to discuss affairs in Pittsburgh and world news. His status in Pittsburgh was heightened during the 1960s because of his opinions of the steel industry, unemployment, and the Vietnam War. The Allegheny Roundtable contains correspondence of the organization and is unprocessed. The material dates from 1948 to 1970.
