 Finding Aid

Charlotte Peters was the first woman on television in St. Louis and a twenty-three year veteran of a daily one-hour show on KSD-TV ' Channel 5 and KTVI ' Channel 2. Peters first began to her television career when she won a spot on Russ Severin's "To The Ladies" television show after she responded to an announcement for a talent contest at KSD-TV. Seven years later, KSD-TV changed the name from "To The Ladies" to "The Charlotte Peters Show." The hour-long musical-variety show was based on whim, impulse, and audience participation. Included in the collection are correspondence, newspaper clippings, sheet music, audio and videotapes, and photographs.
