1940s mystery/suspense radio show
from archive.org

The Mysterious Traveler ran on Mutual from December 1943 until about September of 1952.

This tremendously popular radio show was truly an all around favorite for any mystery lover of the time. It was the brainchild and magnum opus of golden age writing greats Robert Arthur and David Kogan. During its magnificent run, it was nominated for the coveted Edgar award for "Best Radio Drama" in 1949, 1951 and finally garnered a hands down win in 1953. The only show to have more nominations was the CBS powerhouse Suspense.

The Mysterious Traveler scripts totaled nearly 400 with only about 70 surviving today.
