New Collection: TV Critic and GW Professor Lawrence Laurent
Special Collections is pleased to announce a new collection from former GW faculty member Lawrence Laurent, a prominent D.C. radio and television critic. The collection contains course material from Laurent’s time in the Journalism and Media and Public Affairs departments, as well as speeches, correspondence, and photographs from his career as a critic for The Washington Post.
In this photograph from November of 1955, Laurent (left) is pictured with World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Marciano at boxing promoter Goldie Ahearn’s Washington, D.C. restaurant. Marciano was the only boxer to go untied and undefeated while holding the world heavyweight title.
