McEvoy 497 INTRODUCTION Post Biographies of Famous Journalists was suggested by Post Stories of 1941. When this annual collection of fiction appeared, it reminded me of the articles about prominent writers, editors, columnists, and publishers which had been appearing in the Post during recentyears and which I had clipped for use in my University work. Why shouldnt these articles be brought together and be given that permanence and dignity of book publication which their content so richly merited As was pointed out to the Post editors, all of the persons discussed in these articles are, or have been, major figures in contemporary journalism, and as such have earned a niche in biographical literature. The very fact that each of them has been deemed worthy of treatment to the extent of five thou sand words, more or less, in a periodical with a circulation of over three million copies bespeaks the popular interest in those described in this book. It is unlikely, moreover, that many of them will soon be the subjects of full-length biogra phies, thereby making such a collection as this the most practicable way of preserving and making readily available information about them. Publication of book-length studies of ihe subjects of this collection should not, however, weaken or destroy the value of what is herein brought together. In the cases of Walter Winchell and O. X Mclntyre, for ex ample, both of whom have been treated by other authors, the sketches by J. P. McEvoy and J. Bryan, III, are as interesting and valuable as they ever were. Equally as interesting as the subjects of these sketches are the authors. If the persons treated in these articles are, as the title indicates, famous journalists, the same terminology could be applied to some, if not all, of the contributors to this viii Introduction volume. Stanley Walker of City Editor fame, Jack Alexander as an associate editor of the Post, Tom Wallace as the jour nalistic heir to Marse Henry Watterson, and John Cham berlainas the literary critic of a leading American newspaper and an equally distinguished magazine to mention but a few of the contributors can easily take their places along side those about whom they write. All of those treated in this book are, or have been, journal ists in the broad or commonly accepted meaning of the term, with the exception of Marshall Field, III. He is not, of course, a journalist by profession.
