Harold Thomas Henry Carter aka Boake Carter, was an American national news commentator in the 1930s and early 1940s. He was born in 1903 in Baku, Russian Empire (nowadays capital of Azerbaijan), where his father had been in the British Consular Service. Carter grew up in the United Kingdom, where he attended Christ College in Cambridge. He arrived in the United States in 1920 when his father was assigned to Mexico. Boake Carter entered broadcasting as a news commentator with WCAU in Philadelphia. He rose to fame as a broadcast journalist when he covered the Lindbergh kidnapping trial, beginning in 1932. After that, he was a familiar radio voice, but his commentaries were controversial, notably his criticisms of the New Deal. He was almost a forgotten figure when he died of a heart attack in 1944."
