A 1954 profile of the founder of THE NEW YORKER:

"Harold Ross is a kind of impostor. THE NEW YORKER is urbane; cactus is more urbane than Ross. THE NEW YORKER carries understatement almost to the point of inaudibility; with Ross the expletive crowds out most of the eight parts of speech....It is true that he never had a high school education; but it is also true that he is a master grammarian, and that the superb sense of style which informs THE NEW YORKER flows in part from his clean, uncompromising feeling for the English language."
