Norman Corwin died yesterday at the age of 101.
Best known for productions such as The Plot to Overthrow Christmas, On a note of Triumph, and numerous wartime dramas, Corwin was a centerpiece in millions of family rooms every week from 1938 into the early 50's. He wrote screenplays, books, poetry, plays and was one of the last remaining legends still with us from the greatest period in history for radio. He was one of the first to use entertainment as a window into political and social issues and was the first person to receive the One World award for his contribution in mass communication during world war 2.
Corwin died in his home in Los Angeles on Tuesday of natural causes.
