The Museum of Public Relations opening at Baruch College CUNY

In September 2014, three of the public relations profession’s early movers and shakers spoke to an audience at the Baruch College Newman Center to commemorate the opening of the world’s first and only Museum of Public Relations. Harold Burson, founder of Burson Marsteller, Herb Schmertz, creator of the advertorial while representing Mobil Oil and Muriel Fox, who helped launched the woman’s movement in the 1960s addressed more than 170 practitioners, communicators, educators and students. Moderated by James Arnold, the panel was insightful, spirited and reflective of the innovative contributions that forever changed society's perceptions and expectations of such institutions as government, corporations, non-profits and media.
