Textbooks on journalism from 1950s/1960s

Dear All,

I'm currently writing a chapter about Soviet concepts of news. I would like to compare this with normative US ideas about news, ideally using textbooks for journalism students. Does anybody have any tips for what a journalism student of the 1950s or 1960s would have been reading? Is there a text that is considered canonical?

Thanks in advance for your help!
