A digital exhibit celebrating the life and legacy of a media pioneer. Peg Lynch was the first woman to create, write, star in, and solely own a sitcom series. Her show Ethel and Albert enjoyed a long and enormously successful run on radio and, beginning in 1944, television. Lynch developed her own brand of gentle, domestic comedy that won the hearts of viewers across the country and was applauded by critics as well.
