História biográfica

Arthur Barron was a freelance director, writer and producer born on May 14, 1929 in New York City. He wrote and produced a variety of documentaries for network television and later expanded into film and television dramas.

In 1961 his television documentary White Paper was nominated for a Primetime Emmy award in Outstanding Writing Achievement in Documentary Field. In 1973 his feature length film Jeremy won Best First Work at the Cannes Film Festival. Later, in 1976, his work on ABC Afterschool Specials was nominated for a Daytime Emmy award.

Later in life, Barron served as Mass Communications Chair at Emerson College where he supported the controversial decision to ban most rap music from the college radio station, WERS 88.9 FM.
