Historical Mike Wallace Interviews

Watch this Mike Wallace interview with Frank Lloyd Wright online in full, made available by the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas. Thanks to the generous donation of this legendary journalist to the Center, they have 53 interviews including the onces featuring Eleanor Roosevelt, Pearl Buck, and Salvador Dalí .
The old guys at CBS has been telling me the legends of Mike Wallace, telling me scene by scene what his interview with Deng Xiaoping was like, telling me how he had been a perfect gentleman, with every move, every word and every tone so refined and composed. ( Now I wish I was born 20 years earlier.)
