Ray Moore (b. 1922) was an Atlanta TV newsman for twenty-three years. In 1951, he joined WSB Radio and then WSB-TV the following year. Moore resigned as news director of WSB, in 1969, and joined WAGA-TV (Channel 5) until he retired from broadcasting entirely in 1974. Moore produced a number of documentaries on penal reform, school desegregation, hunger, religion, and urban development.
This collection consists primarily of news scripts from WSB-TV (1964-1968) and WAGA-TV (1969-1975) about a number of topics including urban development and race relations. Also included are scripts for two of Moore's documentaries, The Search and Center of Creation.
