CHET HUNTLEY (1911-1974) teamed on television with David Brinkley, beginning with the presidential nominating conventions of 1956. The Huntley-Brinkley Report (1956-1970) won eight Emmy Awards and made the pair, according to a 1965 poll, more recognizable to Americans than the Beatles. Cutting between Huntley in New York and Brinkley in Washington, the news program set new standards in TV journalism. Veteran news broadcaster DAVID BRINKLEY (1920-2003) joined the National Broadcasting Company in 1943. After Huntley's retirement, Brinkley shared the NBC news desk with John Chancellor. From 1982 until his retirement in 1997, Brinkley hosted This Week with David Brinkley for ABC. In 1992, he won a Peabody Award for his report on the 50th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. As a news analyst, Brinkley was noted for his terse, biting comments and his dry wit. He covered every Presidential election and nominating convention from 1956. With the fragmentation of the TV audience in the era of cable and satellite stations, and with the rise of advocacy reporting on networks like Fox and MSNBC, no news personality today enjoys the near-universal public trust once enjoyed by Huntley and Brinkley. While in college in the 1930s, JOHN RAITT began drawing portraits of famous people. He sent his artwork to each subject with a request that it be autographed and returned to him. Two items.
