Cecil E. Carle Collection

Call Number: RH MS D264


Cecil E. "Teet" Carle (1899-1992) was born in 1899 in Emporia, Kansas. In high school, he served as the editor of the school's newspaper. Mr. Carle began his career as a cub reporter under legendary newspaperman William Allen White, and was a close friend to his son, William (Bill) Lindsay White. Mr. Carle started USC's [University of Southern California] Sports News Bureau and served as the publicity director for Paramount Pictures. He grew up being called "Teet" because a younger sibling couldn't pronounce his name, Cecil. Cecil E. Carle died in 1992 at the age of 92. This collection of papers and photographs documents his early years and his friendship with the White family.
