A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Newspaper Collection - The role of newspapers in the life of America is absolutely pervasive. From the reporters on the beat, editors, writers, and finally the actual printing presses, comes the news we read every day. Famous quotes abound. "All the news that's fit to print," New York Times. "It is a newspaper's duty to print the news, and raise hell," Chicago Times. In spite of the appeal of TV, the newspaper is still an incredibly powerful force for the news! In 1917, William White wrote that, "There are three things that no one can do to the entire satisfaction of anyone else: make love, poke the fire, and run a newspaper." Despite the very real challenges facing the newspaper business, many a famous person has taken up that challenge. It is quite striking how many authors had a previous association with reporting the news before they made a name for themselves as authors. Many reporters have had the honor of receiving the Pulitzer Prize for their achievement in journalism. Joseph Pulitzer's statement of policy for the NY World and St. Louis Post-Dispatch upon his retirement in 1907 was as follows. "... always fight for progress and reform, never tolerate injustice and corruption, always fight demagogues of all parties, never belong to any party, always oppose privileged classes and public plunderers, never lack sympathy with the poor, always remain devoted to the public welfare, never be satisfied with merely printing news; always be drastically independent; never be afraid to attack wrong, whether by predatory plutocracy or predatory poverty." Clearly a newspaper is more than just reporting the news. All the individuals pictured here were involved at one time or another with newspapers. Quite a respectable group.
