  • This debate between acting Gov. Charley Johns and future governor LeRoy Collins was filmed from a television monitor (kinescope) and simultaneously broadcast throughout Florida on radio. Moderator Ralph Renick tries valiantly to manage a timer and buzzer mechanism as the candidates argue the issues of the day. There are processing marks through most of film, but otherwise the quality is very good.
