In the 1950’s Mary Ahern was a producer on the ground-breaking show Omnibus, acknowledged as the archetype for Public Television. Omnibus was the first cultural magazine show on television – hosted by Alistair Cooke, the program introduced Leonard Bernstein, Eartha Kitt, Jacques Cousteau, and countless other luminaries to the American public.


Ahern not only helped make media history; she is also one of the crucial people who are responsible for preserving it. She was the first curator at the Museum of Television and Radio and helped to significantly enlarge the holdings of the Motion Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound Division at the Library of Congress.
