Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the acclaimed biography of a giant of American journalism. As editor-publisher of the Chicago Tribune, Robert R. McCormick came to personify his city. Drawing on McCormick's personal papers and years of research, Richard Norton Smith has written the definitive life of the towering figure known as The Colonel.

Book News Annotation:

This biography of the controversial Chicago Tribune editor and publisher portrays McCormick as a self-proclaimed emperor of Chicago who despised New York City and distrusted life outside the American heartland. The book is reprinted from its original publication in 1997. Drawing on years of research and McCormick's personal papers, Smith (director, Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics, U. of Kansas) follows McCormick's life (1880-1955) and details the tangled web of political muscle and blatant bias McCormick wielded via the Tribune. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The definitive portrait of the editor and publisher of the Chicago Tribune.
