OriginEdit

Herbert Oglevee Morrison (1905 - 1989) was an American radio journalist best known for his report of the Hindenburg disaster. A fire destroyed the LZ 129 Hindenburg zeppelin in 1937 killing thirty six people. At the time live broadcasts weren't a thing but Morrison was attempting the first one to cover the arrival of the Hindenburg in New Jersey. The description began routinely but changed as the airship burst into flames. Though stunned and horrified Morrison pressed on professionally providing the information needed. His is most famously quoted as saying "Oh the humanity."

EffectsEdit
