Peg Lynch with her "Ethel and Albert" co-star Alan Bunce, 1953.
Staff at the University of Oregon Libraries were deeply saddened to learn about the recent death of Peg Lynch, a pioneer in broadcast entertainment whose papers are housed in our Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA). Lynch created, wrote, and starred in Ethel and Albert, a domestic comedy that debuted as a national radio program in 1944 and moved to television in 1950. She is widely acknowledged as one of the true originators of the American television sitcom.
