|Article in Beacon Magazine of Hawaii by Leland Stowe, July 1970|
to Wikipedia, Leland Stowe 'won
a Pulitzer Prize in 1930 for his coverage of
the Reparations Conference in The Hague. Stowe was a
runner-up for a second Pulitzer Prize in 1940 for his
work as a war correspondent in World War II and
his coverage of the Russo-Finnish War.' 'In 1955, he
became a professor of journalism at the University
of Michigan in Ann Arbor. During his tenure, he
alternated between teaching one semester each academic
year and working as an editor and staff writer
for Reader's Digest.'
His article in Beacon Magazine was subsequently republished, in a slightly different form, in the USA version of the August 1970 'Reader's Digest' which claimed to have a worldwide circulation of over 29 million copies in 13 languages. The article was subsequently republished, again in slightly different forms, in the UK edition in October 1970, in the Spanish language edition in November 1970 and in the French and Italian language editions in December 1970. It is quite possible that it was also published in many other languages as well, but I have no evidence of this at present.
While this article concentrates on the work of Akira Yoshizawa, it also mentions James Sakoda, George Rhoads, Lillian Oppenheimer, Robert Harbin, Margaret Campbell and Fred Rohm.
My thanks to Michael LaFosse and Richard Alexander for sharing their copy of this article with me.
