Client projects: public service announcements (PSAs), circa 1940s-2002, undated
Business materials, arranged by client, for public service announcements and non-profit radio and television advertisements produced by Tony Schwartz.

The bulk of the material consists of scripts, correspondence, and research materials, such as newspaper clippings, surveys, and brochures. Other material includes photographs, posters, American Federation of Television and Radio Artists HR reports, receipts, and contracts.

Please note that some PSA clients might also be found in other series.
