||Records of WNYU (Radio Station: New York, N.Y.)
||WNYU was formed in 1949 on the University Heights campus of New York University by
a group of engineers. The records of WNYU Radio Station were transferred to the New
York University Archives when the radio station was moved from Gould Memorial Library
at the University Heights campus to Loeb Student Center on Washington Square in June
1973. The records cover the years 1949-1969 and deal with the activities of WNYU radio
station and the efforts and persistence of WNYU's staff to build up an AM-FM radio
station and maintain its broadcasting as one of the best educational radio stations
in the New York metropolitan area. The collection is predominantly composed of correspondence
between WNYU's staff and other constituent parts of the University. Other correspondence
relates to the broader media and metropolitan community.
