Times-News, Fref Press Man Mr!' Tebbel got his first newspaper job at the age of 14 and, as he puts it, "began to learn how the world was put together.? He attended Central where he was a charter member Of the Tau Alpha Upsilon fraternity, also doing some work on the local Times-News. He received his degree of Bachelor of Arts, June 24, 1935. After graduating from Columbia University's School of Journalism,.. Mr. Tebbel worked on the Detroit Free Press and the Providence Journal before becoming managing editor of the American Mercury. Although he left the ranks of working news-, papermen to join E. P. Dutton & Co., as an associate editor, his continuing interest in the history and progress of American journalism is manifested in an ambitious program of research and writing on the subject. Newspaper Dynasty Story An American Dynasty, Mr. Teb- bel's first 'book, concerns the .interlocking Qwnershipof America's :most powerful newspapers-the Chi- ;cago Tribune, the New York Daily News, and the Washington Times- VHerald, constituting the fabulous journalistic empire which is the substance of the book. John Tebbel has written a fascinating, disturbing, and highly readable account of a family that produced in America "more than a newspaper-r-a state of mind." All the incredible history behind the operation of these papers—the ludicrous as well as the dangerous—is here disclosed. With evidence directly from their own columns, Mr. Tebbel evaluates their policies, sounds a warning' to the public, and challenges American journalism to weed its own garden.
