Marlene copy for web

Somewhere inside San Francisco’s Cow Palace, between July 13 and July 16, 1964, during the Republican National Convention, WNEW’s Marlene Sander’s busy editing a reel of tape. The photo came via Bill Diehl from the files of Jerry Graham, WNEW News Director at the time, who died in April of this year.

Most memorable words spoken at that convention:

Barry Goldwater, as he was cheered.
“I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice — and let me remind you also, moderation in pursuit of justice is no virtue.”

Nelson Rockefeller, as he was booed.
“This is still a free country, ladies and gentlemen.”
