ALL the Articles in the 1940's section were saved and donated by Charles Brookwell, Class of 1949 and WRSU First General Manager. 

All Members Past and Present owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Brookwell for pushing forward and making WRSU - Rutgers University Radio a reality.

These clips showed that WRSU almost did not come to be. Only hard work, and perseverance made it happen.
