Quietly laboring over the February, 1932, issue of Vanity Fair magazine, an anonymous scribe had declared that "the clearest, coolest voice to be heard above the political babel of our times is that of Walter Lippmann" (1889 - 1974). This was an opinion commonly shared by many editors at the time - and the egg-heads across town at The Saturday Review were not about to be upstaged by any of the Conde Nast wags, and so a year later they went to press with their own profile of the Pulitzer Prize winning columnist. Their version, attached herein, covered many of the successes and influences of Lippmann's career up to 1933. This piece was written by historian James Truslow Adams (1879 - 1940), who wrote of him:

"This phenomenon of Walter Lippmann is, it seems to me, a fact of possibly deep significance, and the remainder of his career will teach us not a little as to what sort of world we are living into...his intellectualism is tempered for the ordinary reader by his effort to be fair and by his fearlessness."

Another historian, Henry Steele Commager, composed a list of the most influential minds in U.S. history - he ranked Walter Lippmann at number 59 (out of 61) - click here to understand his reasoning...
