Exhibition curated by Jay Pridmore.
The papers of John Gunther, one of the most prominent journalists of the 20th century, have been made public for the first time in this exhibition. Gunther got his start as a literary editor for the Daily Maroon at the University of Chicago, where he graduated in 1922. He went on to serve as a foreign correspondent for the Chicago Daily News from 1925-36, covering every country in Europe and much of the Middle East. He is best known as the author of thirty-six best-selling books, among them Inside Europe and the rest of his famous series of Inside reports and Death Be Not Proud, the moving account of his young son's death. This exhibit represents the first time that Gunther has been critically profiled since his death in 1970.
