In 1946, Mr. and Mrs. North received the first Best Radio Drama
Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America. Though the
program aired one time in 1941, it began a continuous original
run on CBS from December 30, 1942 through December 1946.
The radio show Mr. and Mrs. North was based on a series of
26 novels written by the husband-wife team of Frances and
Richard Lockridge starting in 1940 and continuing until the
the death of Frances in 1963.
