Title Joseph L. Brechner Channel 9 Materials
Scope & Content The Joseph L. Brechner Collection includes documents relating to WFTV Channel 9 television station from 1956-1988.This collection is divided into five (5) different series:

SERIES I: ADMINISTRATION (1960-1976)
Includes documents relevant to the overall running of the station and contains licenses, station procedures, collapse of the station's transmitting tower, and awards received either by the station or by Brechner as manager.

SERIES II: BROADCASTS (1959-1969)
This series is the bulk of the collection. It includes scripts from the television show "With These Hands" about issues pertaining to the medical profession. It also contains news briefs and similar material. However, the bulk of this series and its real significance lies in the editorials broadcast by Channel 9, most written and all approved by Brechner himself, providing insight into his, and by extension the station's, stance on the various issues facing Central Florida, and often the nation, at the time.

SERIES III: ADVERTISING AND PUBLICITY (1956-1969)
Includes publicity scrapbooks, cartoons, and T. V. Guide advertisements.

SERIES IV: COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
These materials deal mostly with Brechner's involvement in Orlando's Interracial Subcommittee, founded by city government leaders in order to help foster real racial integration area-wide and improve quality of life issues for African-Americans in the Orlando area. It reflects Brechner's strong commitment to integration and equality in society.
