"Herb Schmertz Listens" Portrait of Mobil Oil Executive
Portland City Club, May 17, 1968
RFK Speech: Economic Program and Viet Nam
This vintage documentary arts portrait of Herb Schmertz was made as he stood in the wing while RFK addressed the Portland City Club during the 1968 Oregon Primary. Schmertz who was a Vice President at the time, was deeply involved in the Kennedy Campaign. He created Mobil's "Masterpiece Theater" and "Mystery!" on PBS and won a lifetime award for his support and advancement of public television. Kennedy (pictured left in background) fought for Civil Rights as Attorney General; his positive vision for the advancement of peace, justice, equality and responsibility is as relevant today. The noontime luncheon speech addressed the hot topic of ending the war in Vietnam.
