Table of contents What's This?
Collection consists of the files, papers, and kinescopes of Saul Halpert, working journalist in the Los Angeles area from 1946 to 1999. Topics covered range from local to international politics, with a significant project on Los Angeles school integration.
Saul Halpert was born in Albany New York on September 22, 1922. He attended the local school until 1938. After his mother's death he came with his father to Los Angeles, and the family settled in the Temple Street district, which at that time was a largely Jewish neighborhood. Halpert attended Belmont High School and graduated in 1940. He then enrolled in Los Angeles City College on Vermont Avenue for two years and earned an AA degree in 1942.
