Massachusetts Museum to Honor Tom Brokaw

STURBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — A living history museum in Massachusetts is preparing to honor journalist and former TV news anchor Tom Brokaw with a lifetime achievement award.

The Old Sturbridge Village will honor Brokaw at a Nov. 27 ceremony the museum organized with documentary filmmaker Ken Burns.

The annual honor recognizes someone who’s impacted the arts through history-related projects.

Old Sturbridge Village celebrates New England life in the 1830s and has a farm, water-powered mills and a stagecoach.

Burns’ first film was about the museum while in college, and he credits that project with igniting his passion for history.

The Walpole, N.H.-based producer has since produced documentaries on subjects including America’s national parks, baseball and the Civil War.

Brokaw, now an NBC News special correspondent, has authored books including “The Greatest Generation” and “The Time of Our Lives.”
