Short-lived TV Career
Dec. 1957

From a December, 1957, issue of The Kane (Pennsylvania) Republican:

"Dick Johnson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin F. Johnson of Elk Avenue who left the Kane Republican a few months ago to start with the FBI at Washington, drifted into a TV "Wide World" show at Washington the other day. He was backtracking his high school trip at the Smithsonian Institute (sic) when NBC began shooting for the show and was invited to be a part of the presentation—which he took in stride."

"Wide World" was a live show on Sunday mornings, hosted by Dave Garroway. My roommate and I were invited to browse exhibits during the live broadcast of the show. An area, as I recall it was the rotunda of the Smithsonian "castle", was cordoned off so no one could wander in, and he and I were the only two "casual browsers" looking at exhibits. Unfortunately no one I knew saw the show and, since it was live, I couldn't even see it at a later date.
