5952 Winston Burdett Is Dead at 79; Covered World and War for CBS
Published: May 21, 1993

. .Winston Burdett, a radio and television correspondent for CBS News who covered major events in World War II, the Middle East and Washington, died on Wednesday in the Villa Flaminia Clinic in Rome. He was 79 and had lived in Rome since 1956.

His death followed a long illness, said Tom Goodman, vice president for communications at CBS News in New York.

Mr. Burdett was based in Rome from 1948 to 1951 and from 1956 until his retirement in 1978. He had begun working for CBS News in 1940. Began in Radio

He was a radio reporter during his first years at CBS. In the 1950's, after the introduction of television, he began to report on that medium.

During World War II, he covered the fighting in North Africa, the Allied invasion of southern France and the surrender of German forces in Italy.

In later years, he traveled widely. He reported on subjects including turmoil in Africa, the Berlin wall crisis of 1961, conflict on Cyprus and the Middle East War of 1967.

He also reported on Italy and on the deaths, election and installation of popes and other news of the Vatican.

Mr. Burdett, who was born in Buffalo, received a bachelor's degree from Harvard College in 1933. He worked in New York for the old Brooklyn Daily Eagle. Hired by CBS

He went to Europe in 1940 as a freelance reporter and began reporting freelance for CBS News that year in Scandinavia. As the war went on, he continued covering it for CBS from various points, and in 1943 he became a CBS News staff correspondent.

After the war, he reported from the CBS News Washington bureau until he began his first tour of duty in Rome, ending in 1951. He then spent four years in New York, serving as anchorman of the CBS World News Round-Up on the CBS Radio Network and as CBS News's United Nations correspondent.

In the 1950's, he testified before the United States Senate Internal Security subcommittee that he became a Communist spy after being recruited into the Communist Party in 1937. He quit the party in 1942 after a succession of inconclusive espionage attempts in Finland and elsewhere in Europe. He gave the subcommittee the names of some other journalists whom he said he knew or assumed to have been Communists. A Murrow Protege

Mr. Burdett was a protege of Edward R. Murrow, and CBS kept him on after Mr. Murrow arranged for him to be removed from the glare of publicity and reassigned to Rome, 1956.

At his death he was writing a book on the Italian novelist and poet Alessandro Manzoni (1785-1873).

The prizes he won included an Overseas Press Club Award in 1959 for his reporting about the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958 and the election and installation of his successor, Pope John XXIII, and a Sigma Delta Chi award in 1966 for distinguished service in journalism.

His first wife, the former Lea Schiavi, died in 1942.

He is survived by his second wife, the former Giorgina Nathan, to whom he was married in 1945; a daughter, Cristina of Turin; a son, Richard, of London; and four grandchildren

Jonathan Chase's regiment of militia which marched to Ticonderoga from Croydon, NH, were he was born - (Sutton vital records show Seth born in Sutton, possibly the register of birth was made in Sutton and he was indeed born in NH). (D.A.R. Lineage Books, Vol. 70.)
Seth was a Revolutionary War - his grave is marked with a Cayuga Chapter D. A. R. 1756 - 1828. In 1802, Seth, his wife and ten children moved to Dryden, NY. They came with three horses, a yoke of oxen, and two wagons. After 21 days on the road, they settled near Dryden Springs.

5976 Woman Fatally Burned - Started Kitchen Fire with Kerosene Oil - House Destroyed

Ionia, Oct. 3, 1912 - Mrs. Dianthia MC MICHAEL, 76 years of age, who resided with her son George MORGAN, in this village, was so seriously burned shortly after noon yesterday, that her death followed four hours later. The aged woman, who was alone in the house at the time, started to light a fire in the kitchen stove. The wood did not ignite quickly and she resorted to the use of kerosene oil. The explosion that followed enveloped Mrs. MC MICHAEL in flames and set the room on fire. The house with all its contents was soon a mass of ruins, though the woman had made her escape and neighbors lent all the assistance that they could. Her death occurred at 4 o'clock. Besides her son, Mrs. MC MICHAEL leaves five grandchildren. The funeral will take place tomorrow.

5977 Woman, Who Cut Throat With Razor, Finally Dies. Canisteo, Dec. 23. --
Mrs. Grace A. Wallace, 30 years old, who slashed herself across the throat with a razor more than three weeks ago, died at four o'clock this morning at her home No. 5 Jackson street, this morning. Mrs. Wallace suffered a nervous breakdown some time ago and was a patient in the Saint James Mercy hospital at Hornell for a while. She appeared to have recovered physically but her mental condition remained impaired and one night, while her husband was sleeping, she arose and went into the kitchen where she committed the rash act before anyone was aware of what she was doing. Her husband was awakened by the noise she made as she fell and surgeons were immediately summoned. An examination declosed (sic) the fact that in slashing her throat she had severed the windpipe; also the esophagus and tongue. There was no hope for her from the first, but nevertheless she waged a brave, but losing fight. Besides her husband, Lee Wallace, she is survived by two sons, Donald and James Wallace at home, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Bettinger and three sisters and one brother, Mrs. Earl Vanderhoef, Mrs. Phillip Besse, Mrs. Clayton House and Lyle Bettinger, all of Canisteo. She was born in Canisteo and lived here and in West Union all her life. She was a member of the Baptist church, Iola Rebekah lodge and also the Philathea class of the Baptist Sunday school. The funeral will be held at the house Friday afternoon at two o'clock and the Rev. J. T. Jones, pastor of the Baptist church, will officiate. Burial in Woodlawn cemetery.

By Bill Baxter (

"Isaiah Cornell was born in 1801. He had a son named Captain M. Eugene Cornell, who was an unsung war hero of the American Civil War.

Fellow Toastmasters and honored guests....

Eugene Cornell was born on April 11, 1842 . He was not a famous person himself, but he had an uncle who was very famous. His name was Ezra, the brother of Isaiah. Ezra Cornell founded a major university in Ithaca, NY; on a hill overlooking Lake Cayucas. You have probably heard Cornell University's Alma Mater Song, "High Above Cayucas Waters."

After, Eugene Cornell grew up, he became an Officer in the Union Army. In 1862, after the outbreak of the American Civil War, Capt. Eugene Cornell served under General McClellan, who at that time, headed up the Union Forces in The Eastern Campaign, but was always at odds with Honest Abe Lincoln. It was during this time in 1862, that The Union Army was in desperate need of a victory in the East, as the Confederate Army under General Lee had a pretty good stronghold on the Eastern Campaign. As desperate as the Union was for a victory, the South was just as desperate to maintain their stronghold in the East, because in the Western Campaign, The Union Army under General Ulysses S. Grant was dominating the Confederate Army. And so, the two sides met head on at a place in Maryland called Antietam Creek, on Sept. 17, 1862.

The North and the South fought each other at very close range. The Battle of Antietam lasted one day, and I have to say, it was a massacre. The Battle of Antietam was the bloodiest battle of the entire Civil War, and the bloodiest one-day battle in the History of America. A total of 3,650 dead soldiers, Blue and Gray, littered the countryside surrounding Antietam Creek. At least 17,300 people were wounded at the Battle of Antietam. Although the losses were heavy on both sides, General McClellan and his Union Army had obtained their much needed victory at Antietam Creek. This prompted Abraham Lincoln to write his Emancipation Proclamation, which would free all of the slaves in America.

One of the soldiers who died at the Battle of Antietam was Captain Eugene Cornell. There were no confetti brass bands, no medals, just a man who willingly gave his life for his country, and for Abe Lincoln's Cause, which was to reunite a country which was torn apart by slavery and secession. That is my definition of an unsung hero. An unsung war hero is one who willingly lays down his life for his country, without expecting anything in return, whether he lives to tell about it or not. Capt. Cornell did not live to tell about it; but, he was indeed an unsung war hero.

Capt. Cornell had a nephew whose name was George Cornell. George was born in 1854, and was 8 years old, when his uncle died at The Battle of Antietam. When George grew up, he had a daughter named Myrtle Cornell who was born in 1892. Myrtle married a Navy Man by the name of Chief Warrant Officer, Leroy Edwin Baxter--Grampa Baxter to me. Myrtle Cornell, who became Myrtle Cornell Baxter, was my Grandma. Capt. Eugene Cornell was Grandma's Great Uncle and my Great Greet Great Uncle. Capt. Cornell and I are both part of "Uncle Ezra's Family Tree" which grows on top of a hill, "High Above Cayucas Waters." And so, I created this Civil War Website, and named it the Capt. M. Eugene Cornell Memorial Civil War Showcase. During this upcoming Fourth of July Holiday, Let us remember those "Unsung War Heroes" who gave their lives for the freedom which we share here in America."
