Abstract:

... [A]ll 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 ... It is unlikely, moreover, that many of them will soon be the subjects of full-length biographies, thereby making such a collection as this the most practicable way of preserving and making readily available information about them. -- Introduction.
