Re: [ARSCLIST] Scopes Trial Sound Recordings
Perhaps also of interest is the radio play "The Great Tennessee Monkey
presented by L.A. Theater Works based on transcripts of the trial and
(particularly H.L.Menken) reportage.
Best wishes, Thomas Stern.

Vincent Voice Library (although none appear directly related to Scopes).

related to the trial

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Scopes Trial Sound Recordings
One of our museum members was asked by a local theatrical group about to
present "Inherit the Wind" whether there were any sound recordings
the Scopes trial, either the trial itself or broadcast reports of it.
I found a million links to the trial on Google, but only one relating to
sound recordings, on another list, with a few suggestions for research
Does anyone have any information about the existence of actual
recordings of the event?
