Norman Corwin's On a Note of Triumph, an epic aural mosaic aired on May 8, 1945, on CBS Radio just after the collapse of Germany. Carl Sandburg called it 'one of the all time great American poems.' Corwin went on to win the first Wendell Willkie Award a trip around the world sponsored by Freedom House and the Common Council for American Unity. Corwin accepted the Willkie Award on the condition it would be a working trip. He wanted the opportunity to record people in various countries and develop a series of documentaries on the state of the postwar world. CBS offered full support. The thirteen part series, One World Flight, aired in 1947. During Corwin's travels to 17 countries in 1946, he kept a diary of his personal thoughts and observations, and shortly after his return to the States he wrote an intimate account of the journey. Both were put away and forgotten for decades as Corwin faced other writing deadlines. More than sixty years after the trip, media historians Michael C. Keith and Mary Ann Watson unearthed these extraordinary documents, which not only provide a unique analysis of the international scene on the heels of World War Two but also demonstrate the rare power of Corwin's words, the astuteness of his eye, and the depth of his compassion for the human race.
