Halls of Ivy is an American situation comedy that ran from 1950 to 1952 on NBC radio, created by Fibber McGee & Molly co-creator/writer Don Quinn. The series was adapted into a CBS television comedy (1954–55) produced by ITC Entertainment and Television Programs of America. In subject matter, the program was often notably ahead of its time, forward looking, and willing to tackle controversial topics. “Hell Week,” first broadcast on January 2, 1952, boldly addressed the unforeseen dangers of college fraternity hazing. “The Leslie Hoff Painting” and “The Chinese Student” both openly countenanced and dealt with instances of racial bigotry. Another episode centered on an unmarried student’s pregnancy.
