Re: Request for Information

Thank you Barbara and Larry!  I am continually impressed by the depth of knowledge of the researchers in this group.  Sometimes I have hesitated to ask for help because I thought no one might respond.  But so many members contributed information and visuals to the article I just completed on "The 1965 Revival of Old-Time Radio" that I feel like it was a community effort.

Now that we have Senator Edwards to add to Joe and Mary Marlin that's almost enough to form a committee.  I am grateful to you both for the information.

Thank you Ryan and Pygar.  The information about Senator Murphy is very interesting, but does not refute the assumption that Mary Marlin (and I should have added her husband Joe who preceded her in the U.S. Senate) were the only senators in old-time radio.  

This may be a small point, but it does set The Story of Mary Marlin apart from all other OTR soap operas, along with the fact that it is one of only two of them which are principally located in Washington, D.C. 

I welcome corrections if anyone can come up with a U.S. senator who played even a minor role in any other OTR series.
