- Chicago radio news reporter who in 1937 narrated the Hindenburg airship disaster in Lakehurst, NJ on a transcription disc recorder (It was not broadcast live as many people think). His report was the first such eye-witness account of a major disaster. He was sent to cover the landing of the airship by Chicago radio station WLS with the intent of interviewing several of the passengers as part of a Sunday evening news program, and unintentionally had an unobstructed view of one of the worst disasters in transportation history. He later made a life-long career as a radio news reporter.
- "Charlie", mentioned in his report, is his sound engineer, Charlie Nehlson, who was manning the transcription disc recorder inside a nearby garage as Morrison narrated the disaster.
