Thomas Goldsmith Dead at 99

More sad news to report nationally today, that actually happened yesterday. (Hat Tip: Rich Emery)

Dr. Thomas T. Goldsmith, one of the pioneers of the Du Mont Television Network, has died at age 99, reports the Olympian out of Olympia, Washington.

Here's a link to an interview Dr. Goldsmith did a couple years ago with the Archive of American Television.

It should be noted that WTTG-TV in Washington, DC, which Goldsmith started as an affiliate of the Du Mont network, carries his initials.
