Restless genius : Barney Kilgore, the Wall Street journal, and the invention of modern journalism by Richard J Tofel( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1929, Barney Kilgore, fresh from college in small-town Indiana, took a sleepy, near-bankrupt New York financial paper - The Wall Street Journal - and turned it into a thriving national newspaper that eventually was worth $5 billion to Rupert Murdoch. Kilgore then invented a national weekly newspaper that was a precursor of many trends we see playing out in journalism now." "Tofel brings this story of a little-known pioneer to life using many previously uncollected newspaper writings by Kilgore and a treasure trove of letters between Kilgore and his father, all of which detail the invention of much of what we like best about modern newspapers. By focusing on the man, his journalism, his foresight, and his business acumen, Restless Genius also sheds new light on the Depression and the New Deal."--Jacket

Eight weeks in washington, 1861 : abraham lincoln and the hazards of transition by Richard J Tofel( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

As we celebrate 150 years since Lincoln first took the oath of office on March 4, 1861, a reappraisal of Lincoln's first eight weeks in office is in order. A close look at those weeks, our most hazardous transition, reveals a time when the fate of the nation's capital, certainly of the Lincoln Administration, and perhaps of the nation itself, seemed very much in doubt. This is a story of a president uncertain and sometimes amateurish, of a man not yet fully recognized as a legitimate leader, of an executive anxious to the point of illness, of a beleaguered figure, occasionally despairing, but also starting to find his footing. Lincoln himself soon remembered it as the most troubled and anxious time of his life, one that might actually have threatened his physical survival. In a sense, it is a story of Abraham Lincoln the human being beginning to become the Abraham Lincoln we now recall
