Scope and Contents

This collection is divided into 11 series.

Series I, the Clippings series, contains a rich collection of newspaper and magazine clippings covering a broad range of subjects of interest to researchers, especially covering broadcast media during the period of the 1960s to the early 2000s, including television and radio news reporting in combination with other topics, particularly anchor persons and women and minorities in broadcasting, but also including topics such as coverage of Viet Nam and Watergate and the beginning of the internet and electronic news gathering. Stone also collected clippings for use in his classes; where there is a significant number of these they have been moved into the clippings series, but the clippings essential to teaching the class were left with the teaching materials.

Series II, Correspondence, is broken down by format, with traditional forms (letters, cards) being arranged alphabetically by author. His web responses reside in a separate subseries, since this is the way that Stone had them organized. A third subseries is correspondence having to do with his "Careers" brochure.

Series III, Miscellaneous, contains the few items which don't fit anywhere else.

Professor Stone created many handwritten and typed notes, sometimes in combination with photocopies and clippings, which he presumably used for his classes. However, since the class for which they were intended sometimes is not indicated and in many cases were used in multiple classes, they are brought together into a series called Notes, which makes up Series IV.

Stone's professional activities, including his consulting work and university appointments are collected in Series V, Professional Materials.

Stone was active in many professional organizations, and his records of this activity (with the exception of RTNDA and RTNDF, which have their own series) make up Series VI.

Series VII, RTNDA, is make up of committee work and research that he undertook on behalf of RTNDA, such as the evaluations of their annual meetings.

The Research series, Series VIII, is made of up two streams: literature gathered by Stone, arranged alphabetically by topic and often accompanied by Stone's notes; and summaries of raw data collected by Stone, often accompanied by articles on the topic and sometimes by correspondence when the respondents felt the need to elaborate on the surveys sent them. These two streams make up a single series. A third stream, a sampling of the surveys themselves, make up a separate subseries in the Research series.

Stone served for a time as editor of Static, and a series of these journals make up Series IX.

Stone taught for many years and kept copious notes for each of his classes, sometimes including clippings and articles in his files along with handouts and assignments. These are arranged alphabetically by the name of the course, since he taught similar courses at four universities. These materials are brought together in the Teaching Materials series, Series X.

Series XI, the Writings series, includes articles written by Stone, either by himself or with others. These include manuscripts and/or finished articles. It also sometimes includes print-outs from his web page. When notes, clippings, or other research was kept by Stone in a file with the finished article, they were not removed to the other series but kept with the article. Correspondence about the  piece of writing is also kept with the piece. A curiosity in the writing series is a song written based on Stone's research on women in newsrooms, represented here by an audio cassette recording.

Stone had a habit of writing information on the covers of his folders. Where this information was deemed important we have kept the original folder. When these were too shabby, the materials were enclosed in new folders with the cover of the original folder included as part of the material within the new folder.

The watchword for using this collection is interrelation. Clippings are found throughout the collection, in the clippings files, the notes files, the research files, and the writings files. In order to perform an exhaustive search on a topic, all of these series should be consulted.

Stone was an avid researcher who collected extensively in the area of media, and this collection represents a rich source of research brought together on many topics. The clippings especially represent a collocation of materials useful to the researcher interested in broadcast media in the last half of the twentieth century.

Biographical Note

Vernon Arthur Stone was born on October 21,1929 in Bowling Green, Kentucky, to Hughie and Mabel Stone. He received his BA in English at Western Kentucky University in 1951; his MA at the University of Iowa in journalism in 1953; and his Ph.D. at University of Wisconsin, Madison in mass communication in 1966. From 1966-1974 he served on the faculty of the University of Wisconsin at Madison before moving to the University of Georgia in 1974. In 1978 he moved to Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, where he served as Director of the School of Journalism; and in 1986 he took his last posting at University of Missouri at Columbia, as a research professor at the School of Journalism. He retired with the rank of Emeritus Professor in 1992. He was one of the leading scholars in the field of broadcast journalism.

Stone's knowledge of the profession was broad as well as deep, as he worked as a newsman, announcer, and managing news editor in radio, and a newsman and television news coordinator at television stations before embarking on his teaching career. In addition to his teaching duties, Professor Stone served as research director for the Radio and Television News Directors Association (RTNDA) for 22 years, in which position he collected data on many topics of interest to newspeople. This included statistics on women and minorities in television and radio news, stress among newspeople, the effects of electronic news gathering (ENG) among many, many others. He was honored for this work with a Distinguished Service Award from RTNDA. He wrote three books, the last one being Let's Talk Pay in Television and Radio News published in 1993, as well as many essays and articles. He also served on many committees, both at the universities where he worked and in professional organizations, such as the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC).

Stone had a gruff manner but it was obvious that he was dedicated to his profession and to his students. He loved jazz and travelled the Midwest to attend concerts. Stone was a hiker and was often seen on the hiking trails around Columbia. He married Saribenne Thomas on June 11, 1966. They had two children, Adam and Hallie. The marriage ended in divorce, and he never remarried.

Stone died in Columbia at the age of 75 on June 15, 2005.
