News That Didn’t Fit: Photos and a Video Clip for Widener Magazine’s Entertainment Timeline

October 18, 2010

The most challenging part of editing Widener Magazine is cutting some of the wonderful material I come across that I don’t have room to fit in print, such as the shots below of the late radio and television actor Burt Mustin, a 1903 alumnus of Pennsylvania Military College.   Mustin’s familiar face appears in the new fall magazine feature “A Timeline of Famous and Influential Faces” — the issue was printed last week and on the way to readers as I write this.

Mustin played on the PMC hockey team — here he is front and center. (Click image to enlarge.)

He also played baseball — here he is on the far right in the second row.

For more Mustin photographs, visit his section in the Wolfgram Memorial Library Digital Collection or check out the Burt Mustin Fan Club page on Facebook.   I also found the clip below of him appearing on “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson in March 1976, shortly after his 92nd birthday.  He died in 1977, but his estate each year continues to make a donation to the university.
