Scope and Content Abstract:This collection consists of audio tape recordings of Ford Hall Forum programs, recorded between 1961 and 1998. The collection also contains one video tape. Researchers should note the date of the recording is often different from the date of the broadcast. The finding aid indicates the date of recording.

The collection includes descriptions of the programs, information about the speakers, and indices by speaker, call number and subject area compiled by the Media Center staff. Each recording has corresponding information sheets (folders 5-12, box 11), containing information regarding length, speaker, general subject, lecture topic, date recorded, date broadcast, and date of acquisition.

Historical Abstract:The Ford Hall Forum is the nation's oldest free public lecture series. It provides a non-partisan platform for open discussion and debate on topics of public interest. The Ford Hall Forum was started in 1908 by George W. Coleman, a Boston business man and president of the Boston Baptist Social Union (BBSU), as a free series of public lectures designed to engage the public on a diverse range of issues. The model was an opening lecture, and then questions from the audience. Ford Hall Forum was immediately successful and inspired many similar series in cities across the country. In 1928, the Boston Baptist Social Union charged that Ford Hall Forum was anti-Christian and anti-American. The Daughters of the American Revolution also blacklisted Ford Hall Forum for radicalism. Nonetheless, the Ford Hall Forum, which had attracted many eminent supporters, separated from the BBSU to incorporate as a nonprofit educational organization on its own. Meetings were held in Ford Hall on Beacon Hill through 1940 when the hall was acquired by the City of Boston. Since that time, Ford Hall Forum has been held in various Boston locations, including Jordan Hall and Old John Hancock Hall. Currently, programs are held at Northeastern University, Faneuil Hall, Old South Church, and local venues.
System of Arrangement:Arranged in one alphabetical sequence by speaker.
