It was initially broadcast on radio from1935 to 1953, and later on television from 1952 to 1957.Originally on CBS the series pioneered the use of anthologydrama for company audio advertising.Cavalcade of America documented historical events using storiesof individual courage, initiative and achievement, often withfeel-good dramatizations of the human spirit's triumph againstall odds. This was consistent with DuPont's overall conservativephilosophy and legacy as an American company dating back to1802. The company's motto, "Maker of better things for betterliving through chemistry," was read at the beginning of eachprogram, and the dramas emphasized humanitarian progress,particularly improvements in the lives of women, often throughtechnological innovation.The show started as part of a successful campaign toreinvigorate DuPont. In the early 1930s, the Nye Committeeinvestigations concluded that DuPont had made a fortuneprofiteering in World War I. The company stood accused ofencouraging an arms race between WWI enemies, after beingheavily subsidized by the Allies to increase black powderproduction. The negative effects of the investigation left thecompany demoralized, directionless and with a tarnishedcorporate image in the middle of the Great Depression.DuPont's products were primarily not for public consumption, sothere was no purpose in promoting them through advertising. As asolution to DuPont's troubles, Roy Durstine, then creativedirector of Batten, Barton, Durstine & Osborn, proposed thecreation of Cavalcade of America using the company motto. Thiswas to be an important element in the successful re-branding ofDuPont as an American legacy engaged in making products for thewell-being of Americans and humanity in general.Ironically, DuPont's image problems lead the company to promotesome pacifist and socialist ideals. DuPont stipulated severaltopics would be taboo on the show such as gunfire of any kind,which attracted writers such as Norman Rosten and Arthur Miller,who had signed the Oxford Pledge while at University ofMichigan. For scripts the program was also able to attract suchprominent writers as Maxwell Anderson, Stephen Vincent Benét,Carl Sandburg and Robert Sherwood. Although Yale Universityhistorian Frank Monaghan signed on as an advisor to ensurehistorically accuracy of the scripts, listeners were quick topoint out that trains did not use air brakes in 1860 andWashington's troops could not have sung "Tannenbaum" whilecrossing the Delaware since it was written two months after thatevent.On May 15, 1940 DuPont made nylon women's hosiery available tothe public and began an advertising blitz. The day wasdesignated "N-day" by DuPont's marketeers, and an entire episodeof Cavalcade of America was markedly different: DuPont selecteda "typical" housewife to interview G. P. Hoff, Director ofResearch of DuPont's Nylon Division. In the rigged interview,Hoff expounded at length on the virtues of nylon. Eager topurchase nylon hose, thousands of women waited in lines fordepartment stores to open the following morning. 750,000 nylonshad been manufactured for N-Day, but all were sold on the firstday they went on sale.In the 1950s, DuPont switched its advertising strategy fromradio to television, and Cavalcade of America became atelevision series. Over five seasons, 133 episodes were airedbetween 1952 and 1957. During a six-month period, the TV andradio series overlapped. The show was telecast on both NBC(1952-53) and ABC (1953-57). It was renamed DuPont CavalcadeTheater in August 1955, and it was known as DuPont Theaterduring its last year. In the 1957 fall season it was replaced byThe DuPont Show of the Month, a 90-minute live dramatization ofpopular novels and short stories or abridged versions of filmsand plays. That series ran until 1961.Many kinescopes of Cavalcade of America survive at the UCLA Filmand Television Archive.
