Journalism of the Highest Realm: The Memoir of Edward Price Bell, Pioneering Foreign Correspondent for the Chicago Daily News Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Once considered the "best American newspaperman London has ever had," Edward Price Bell (1869?1943) helped invent the ideal of a professional foreign news service at the late Chicago Daily News, which in its heyday had the second-largest daily newspaper circulation in the United States. At the turn of the twentieth century, professional overseas reporting was still an experiment. The Chicago Daily News owner and publisher Victor Lawson was uncertain how to organize the service or even what kind of news it should cover. Bell, who had distinguished himself as a young reporter in Chicago, became the anchor for the service when Lawson sent him to London in 1900. The course he set established the standard for the New York Times and other prestige newspapers. Cole and Hamilton have edited and annotated Bell's autobiography here, focusing on his lively account of the early days of the Chicago Daily News' foreign service as well as the dramatic stories his correspondents covered.
