Carl Haverlin, born (circa 1899) in Globe, Arizona, was the son of a mining engineer. Although Haverlin never graduated from high school, he was regarded as an authority on the Civil War. Haverlin was considered a pioneer in radio broadcasting.

His career in broadcasting began in 1924, when, at the age of 25, he took a job working at Station KFI in Los Angeles. He conceived the idea of broadcasting the Rose Bowl football game and sold the idea to NBC. The 1927 Rose Bowl game was one of NBC's first coast-to-coast broadcasts. The play-by-play account was called by Haverlin and Graham MacNamee.

After working at Station KFI for a number of years, Haverlin left radio to enter the business of music transcription. In 1940 he became vice president for station relations at Broadcast Music Inc. BMI had been formed in 1940 to compete with the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers in licensing radio broadcasters to use copyrighted material.

Carl Haverlin became president of BMI in 1947, returning to BMI after serving as vice president of the Mutual Broadcasting System from 1944 to 1947. He continued as president of BMI until his retirement in 1964. Haverlin died in 1985 at the age of 86.

During Haverlin's years at BMI he developed a close working relationship and friendship with Carl Sandburg. They worked together on Lincoln's Devotional and The New American Songbag . In addition to the correspondence and material related to their work together, Haverlin collected various printed items and manuscripts written by Carl Sandburg. It is this collection of Sandburg material which composes the Carl Haverlin Papers.
