BEST MAGAZINE ARTICLES OF THE YEAR 1966

Mr. Walker, an editor for the New York Times, had to go through over 3000 articles to come up with these top twenty but it was worth it. Covering a wide variety of subjects of general topical interest they include: William Barry Furlong exposing How Doctors Use Patients as Guinea Pigs; William Styron reminiscing on his own experiences as a Southerner in search of 'ol Nat Turner (the ex-slave who ignited a Negro rebellion and subsequent massacre); Tom Wolfe cooling it with a Puerto Rican contemporary troubadour; A.M. Rosenthal revisiting Hiroshima; Pat Watters probing the increasing problems in the Civil Rights Drive; Lewis Laplan giving a blow-by-blow account of what happened to Kelly, Broadway's biggest flop; Dwight Macdonald's criticisms of the Warren Report; James Mills exploring the problems of addiction in ""Needle-park""; Eric Sevareid on The Final Troubled Hours of Adlai Stevenson; William Bowen giving a technical run-down of water shortage problems and solutions; Art Buchward laughing at The Feminine Mistaque and more. Professional, polished performances by some of the best in the genre. Biographical notes. Role of Honor for last year's winners.
