What media history means to me, by Pennsylvania Media Museum researcher and writer Jackie Stull:

When you think of all the tasks and activities you partake in the course of a day, it is a safe assumption to make that over half of them have involved some type of media. Wouldn’t it be important to look at the history behind the media and how it all came about. Knowing more about media history would show us important people, places and things that have contributed to communication, entertainment, work, and the organization of our world!
