This is an epitaph, without excess of sentiment, an excellent recording of the demise of an era. From the time of Joseph Pulitzer's purchase of the World from financier Jay Gould, after Pulitzer had created the outstanding crusading reputation of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, until the mass mergings of deteriorating papers by Frank A. Munsey, Park Row and "newspaper row" were synonymous. The World soon became a thunderbolt among the typographically staid papers of the time, challenging for circulation Charles Anderson Dana's Sun which could boast of the most superior staff on the Row. Similarly William Randolph Hearat's Herald, with unlimited money, bold ideas, little integrity, which created news and war where there were none, was bringing irrevocably a new phase to journalism, which if it lacked responsibility, was ample in excitement and talent. The most notable names, genius and eccentric, among the Fourth Estate David Graham Phillips, Stephen Crane, Richard Harding Davis, John Cockerill, James Gordon Bennett, Charl?? Chaplin - are here assessed and alternately praised or damned. Great editors, reporters, stories, of the time before the surviving dailies moved uptown and before the advent of the syndicate, are viewed sometimes with nostalgia, always in a lively and engaging fashion.
