   schema:reviewBody ""Prior to World War II, women were a rarity in the newsrooms of daily papers throughout the country. The assignments given to those few who graced the profession reflected the newspaper culture of the time - society, fashion, and school news. Doris O'Donnell proved the exception. While she began her journalism career with those routine tasks, in short order she broke those barriers and assumed more challenging duties of investigative reporting and covering the crime beat." "Her 58-year career as a news reporter included the prestigious assignments of covering such notable events as the assassinations of President John Kennedy, Senator Bobby Kennedy, and Martin Luther King, Jr.; the inner-city riots in Cleveland and other major cities during the summer of 1966; Ted Kennedy's Chappaquiddick incident; and the Sam Sheppard murder case. She also traveled with the Cleveland Indians baseball team (the Cleveland Sports Writers voted her out of the all-male press box in Baltimore, D.C., and Boston), lived with an African American family on Cleveland's east side and wrote a three-week series about their daily lives, and in 1957 traveled to the Soviet Union where she reported on the intimate lives of the average Russian." "In Front-Page Girl, O'Donnell regales the reader with her tales of Cleveland's mobsters, riots, murders, and corruption and delves into the murkiness of local, national, and global politics. This memoir doubles as an important glimpse into the stories behind the headlines and as a treasure trove of Cleveland history."--Jacket." ;
