Dean Rusk Personal Papers, Series IX: Audiovisual, contains audio and video recordings documenting the career of Dean Rusk. The audio recordings range from Rusk's 1961 swearing-in as secretary of state to a 1995 memorial service for Rusk held at Davidson College. Many recordings are audio tracks of interviews conducted with Rusk for television, including a 1971 interview with Bill Moyers, a 1971 "Today" interview, appearances on all of the major networks discussing the impending 1972 presidential election, a 1973 interview with Rusk on the death of Lyndon B. Johnson, and a 1974 interview with William F. Buckley. Additional recordings include audio tracks for television programs on which Rusk did not appear but which held interest for him: a 1971 news segment on Nikita Khrushchev, a 1972 interview with Johnson by Walter Cronkite for CBS, a 1972 interview with David Halberstam on "Today," a 1972 interview with Walt and Eugene Rostow conducted by William F.

The videotapes in the collection cover a broad range of subjects, but the bulk of the tapes date from 1983 to 1989 and roughly coincide with Rusk's retirement from teaching at the University of Georgia. The videotapes range in date from a copy of a March 1962 profile of Dean Rusk by WBTV-TV in Charlotte , North Carolina to the 1996 dedication of the University of Georgia 's Dean Rusk Hall. Included among the videotapes is a copy of the CBS News coverage of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Rusk's 1984 deposition in the Westmoreland v. CBS libel case, a fourteen-tape unedited interview with Dean Rusk conducted in 1985 by Edwin Newman, a thirty-minute documentary on Rusk produced by the University of Georgia in 1988 called "Conversations with Great Georgians: Dean Rusk," a multi-part series entitled "The United Nations: Issues of Peace and Conflict" that covers the 1989 Report of the Former Ambassadors to the United Nations, a three-part interview with Rusk conducted by Kenneth Harris for a BBC series entitled "The Twentieth Century Remembered," as well as several other television appearances and interviews that reflect back on Rusk's tenure as secretary of state during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations and that touch on the topics of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam, and the Cold War. Also included in the collection is a silent 16mm home movie from 1945 depicting then Colonel Rusk playing tennis at the palace of the viceroy (now the residence of the President of India) with friends Colonel Currie, Captain Swain, Lieutenant Plager, and other unidentified persons.
