The Tobacco Documents: ndustrydocumentslibrary.ucsf.edu

Huh? Old radio scripts and toboacco? What in the world? Well, the tobacco companies were big sponsors of old time radio -- shows like "Jack Benny", "The Big Story", and others. When the big industry lawsuits against the tobacco industry occured many years ago, gigantic amounts of tobacco industry material got scanned and archived and eventually placed online.

As of 2017, the most reliable website to search for scripts scripts is: https://www.industrydocumentslibrary.ucsf.edu/tobacco

This site has PDF files with literally hundreds of shows and commercials dating back as far as 1928. Search on "type:script" to see what we mean.
