Smile, Luther, You’re On CUNY TV

Luther Gulick was fittingly the star when the City University’s television show “Urban U” came to the Baruch Library Archives to record a segment on the great civic reformer (1892-1993) who devoted his distinguished government career to “making democracy work.”

CUNY TV host Ari Goldberg and his camera toured our historic Institute of Public Administration Collection and Luther Gulick Papers, focusing on Gulick’s efforts to reorganize the chaotic executive branch for President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, his World War II relief work, and postwar Reparations missions to Germany and Japan. We even got to show off Gulick’s walking cane (which he mainly used for protection.) The program began airing in June.
