THE SUNPAPERS OF BALTIMORE by H.L. Mencken

THE SUNPAPERS OF BALTIMORE

KIRKUS REVIEW

A centenary tribute to makers of journalistic history, the Sunpapers of Baltimore, written by men who have contributed to that history. A skillful piece of "patchwork writing" in which the seams are not evident. Follows closely the inner machinations of the papers, the owners and the editors and the reporters who made them, the politics -- local and national -- that brought them into the limelight, the ups and downs of management and policy, the fairly consistent attitude of courage and forthrightness that characterized them. The interest will be primarily local, for Baltimore and its citizens feature largely in the story. Newspaper people everywhere will want it.
