One Man's Family was an American radio soap opera that aired between 1932 and 1959. It was written by Carlton E. Morse, and was the longest-running uninterrupted dramatic radio program. The episodes were divided into books and chapters. Over its 27 year span, the program presented 136 books with 3,256 chapters.
The production was set in the Sea Cliff area of San Francisco and was entered around stockbroker Henry Barbour, Franny, and their five children (Paul, Hazel, Clifford, Claudia, and Jack). The program made reference to a number of the San Fransisco area.
The drama made its television debut in prime time in 1949 and was on television until 1955.
Stop by the museum to see this awesome piece along with the rest of our collection!
Back in 2017 our staff wrote a new post each week about a different artifact from our Museum collection.

Enjoy this sneak peek of our Museum and make sure to stop on by to see more!
