Wonderful memories of Mike Wallace's Biography series
8 April 2012 | by wjrprezhistorianSee all my reviews

I have such vivid memories of Mike Wallace's 'Biography' series. I wholewheartedly agree with Ms. Sanchez' sentiments, which were posted earlier.

The series ran from 1961 - 1964, but I am so grateful that one of our local NYC TV stations aired daily repeats (in the early mornings) of this wonderful, informative series.

It is, largely due to this series, that I, myself, got so involved in History.

I mourn Mr. Wallace's passing (1918-2012), but will always be grateful for his 'Biography' TV series.
