photo of Zenith remote-controlled tv in corner of Sandburg dining room

One of Carl Sandburg's many friends was the President of the Zenith Corporation. This television set, one of the first remote control tvs, was given to him by that friend. Mr. Sandburg gracefully accepted his friend's gift, although he was not a big fan of tv! He believed tv to be a thief of time.
