Arthur Godfrey
Aviation and Broadcasting Pioneer
March 3 - 29, 2003

Arthur Godfrey, pioneer radio and television broadcaster, was a Loudoun County, Virginia resident from 1946 until his death in March 1983. He was also a lifelong advocate of civil aviation and donated the land for Loudoun's first airstrip and later for Godfrey Field, which remains Leesburg's airport. The Loudoun Museum, with assistance from the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities and the National Air and Space Museum, has assembled this examination of two aspects of Godfrey's life and work, on the 100th anniversary of his birth and 20th anniversary of his death. Besides the exhibition, a series of evening public programs, co-sponsored by NVCC, will take place in the Waddell Theater.
