I will go with Donna regarding Nathan. But it is R. Peter.

I thought it was J. Peter Strauss, but never mind-- they are, as far as I
know, all part of the same radio family-- Nathan was originally in real
estate, in fact, till he bought WMCA in the 40s I think it was the 40s-- I
don't have my research books here right now...) For more about the entire
Strauss clan and their involvement with radio, consult the book by Bill
Jaker, "The Airwaves of New York."
