    He had a brief stint as a Broadway actor.

    When Wallace interviewed General William Westmoreland for the CBS Reports documentary 'The Uncounted Enemy: A Vietnam Deception,' an investigation of the documentary charged that the producers had violated standards of fairness, and Westmoreland sued the network. The charges Wallace aired ...'conspiracy to cover-up the size of Viet Cong troop strength.'

    He studied broadcasting at the University of Michigan and began an acting and announcing career in 1939.
