Biographical and Professional Information
In 1926, the Chicago native began covering crime for the City Press Association, now City News. He remained at City News, now jointly owned by the Tribune and the Sun-Times, for 44 years. In 1956, he became the night city editor. He may be best known, however, for his fixation on accuracy. "If your mother says she loves you," he often said, "check it out."
