Reagan 'GE Theater' tapes restored, go to library (JEFF WILSON, 3/17/10, AP)

- All 208 episodes of television's "General Electric Theater," hosted by then-actor Ronald Reagan, are being delivered to former first lady Nancy Reagan on Wednesday as part of the two-year celebration of the late president's 100th birthday.

The 1954-1962 "General Electric Theater" tapes, most believed to be damaged or lost, were recently uncovered in the General Electric/NBC Universal archives. They were restored to broadcast quality for use in the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley.

Despite its unsustainable thesis, Thomas W. Evans's The Education of Ronald Reagan offers an interesting history of GE under Lemuel Boulware and his corporate philosophy, Boulwarism.
