Biographical Sketch/Agency History

History:

William B. Quarton was a noted Iowa broadcast executive, spending most of his career at WMT radio and TV in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  Quarton also established Cablevision of Iowa, providing cable TV service to small towns in Iowa.

He was active in the National Association of Broadcasters, serving as its chairperson in 1963. He was also a member of the CBS radio and TV affiliates board of directors, and the first president of the Iowa Broadcasters Association.

Quarton was active in a number of other organizations:

  • A founder of Iowa Public Television.
  • Early board member of the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), serving as its vice chairperson in 1975.
  • Coe College trustee for more than 30 years.
  • Hoover Presidential Library trustee for more than 30 years.

  • Many Cedar Rapids organizations including the Museum of Art and Chamber of Commerce.

As a philanthropist, Quarton supported the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation, and left a $35 million gift to the foundation at the time of his death. The donation was used to establish the William Quarton Heritage Society, creating endowments for four organizations.
