RANK NICHOLAS STANTON,
Ohio Wesleyan '30, was elected a
vice-president of the Columbia Broadcasting System, September 3, 1942. This
election marked not the climax, but
certainly an important event in the
career of one of the most important men
in American radio. At thirty-four
Brother Stanton is the youngest major
network vice-president in the country.
He has, moreover, been a pioneer in the
application of scientific measuring techniques to radio audience behavior and
has become a leading authority in the
whole field of public opinion and attitude measurement.
It is no accident that Stanton came
into radio via science. Nor should it be
surprising to those who know his background that he is the inventor of precision instruments for psychological testing. At an early age he learned scientific
accuracy and the meaning of fine craftsmanship from his father, a skilled
cabinet-maker who was for many years
supervisor of manual training for the
Dayton, Ohio, school system.
When I first met Frank he was very
much interested in drawing. He was a
tow-headed grade school kid then who
sat across the table from me in a cartooning class at the old Dayton Y.M.C.A. The
instruction was no great shakes, but we
got practice and had fun at it. At least
one of our classmates has since become
famous as a cartoonist: Milton Caniff,
creator of "Terry and the Pirates."
During high school days Stanton's
skill with pen and brush made him selfsupporting. He worked afternoons and
Saturdays doing showcard and display
work for a big clothing store. By the time
he started off to college he had made
himself indispensable to the clothing
company. For at least part of his college
years he helped earn expenses by making
frequent week-end trips to work at the
display job eighty miles away.
