These scripts represent programs such as Spotlight Playhouse, The Eddy King Show, Ready for Brady, and The Monty Masters Show, all of which were broadcast locally in San Francisco, as well as the Candy Matson series, which started as a local program on station KNBC in June 1949 before being carried nationally on NBC in September 1949. There also includes short stories, photographs and correspondence during his time in the military during World War II. In the early 1960s he went to work for Warner Brothers, and later Paramount, as an assistant director, and continued to work in the film industry until his death in 1969.
