Biographical/Historical note

Hugh Rundell was born at Madison, Wisconsin, in 1919. He graduated from Ripon College and the University of Wisconsin, taking a degree in speech with some emphasis on radio. After service in the Army and employment at the University of West Virginia, he joined the faculty of Washington State College in 1948 as an Assistant Professor of Speech.

Rundell worked for WSU until retirement in 1982, concentrating on a variety of radio-related jobs, both with the college radio station and in classes. He was well-known as the author of a pronunciation guide to place names in Washington and the announcer on the widely-syndicated program Legendary Pianist.

During 1976-1978 Rundell conducted a series of oral interviews of several radio broadcasting pioneers in the Northwest.

Arrangement note

WSU Libraries staff have arranged the Papers of Hugh Rundell and related the Pacific Northwest Broadcasting Oral History Project papers as a single collection of personal papers, largely because the working papers of the oral history project were intermingled in Rundell's papers.

Series 1 consists of recording tapes, transcriptions and similar oral history materials. Series 2 consists of papers and correspondence of Hugh Rundell, related both to this project and to broadcasting and teaching in general. The general correspondence covers a wide range of broadcasting subjects, including activities of the Communications Department at Washington State University.
