Local Washington radio station WRC, of the Radio Corporation of America, begins broadcasting a series of talks on the Smithsonian. The talks were so successful that a regular series on scientific subjects is initiated on April 9, 1924, with Austin H. Clark who gives a talk on "The Giants of the Animal World."  The series runs for more than four years.
