Ritchie remarks that the text of Network at Fifty "was the radio broadcast that Norman Corwin read over the air on the fiftieth anniversary of the Columbia Broadcasting System. Robert Nathan wrote an introduction. I printed it for the Invierno Press. Each copy was signed by Corwin, Nathan and me." Norman Corwin was an American writer, screenwriter, producer, essayist and teacher of journalism and writing. His earliest and biggest successes were in the writing and directing of radio drama during the 1930s and 1940s. The principal of the Invierno Press was Carl Haverlin, whose Invierno Press published a total of three books; this, and a book each of Paul Landacre and James Joyce.
