Interviews: 1912 - 1960

               Interviews: 1912 - 1960 Film Clips

Howard Hughes (Nugget Magazine, 1957)

"Howard Hughes (1905 - 1976) works as Edison worked - hard. Hughes possesses much of Edison's inventive genius. In the public eye it is Hughes' Cassanova role which stands out, but if Hughes was only a rich collector of escapades, he would no more merit serious serious examination than Tommy Manville... The late novelist Rupert hughes, Howard's uncle, once remarked when asked why he would not talk to his famous nephew: "When I get down on my knees I can talk to God, but not to Howard Hughes."


Jackie Robinson: In the Beginning (Yank Magazine, 1945)

This column concerns Jackie Robinson's non-professional days in sports; his football seasons at Pasadena Junior College, basketball at UCLA and the Kansas City Monarchs. Being an Army publication, the reporter touched upon Robinson's brief period as a junior officer in the 761st Tank Battalion.

A 1951 article about the Negro Baseball League can be read here

In 1969, Jackie Robinson wrote about African-American racists, click here to read it...

Dr. Freud (Pathfinder Magazine, 1939)

This is a profile of Dr. Sigmund Freud that appeared during the last months of his life. In the Spring of 1938 Freud and his family had fled to London in order escape the Nazis.


A Profile of Cartoonist Rube Goldberg, Cartoonist and Quack-Inventor (Vanity Fair, 1914)

In the attached 1914 magazine profile, Joseph Edgar Chamberlin (1851 - 1935) asked, "Who is Goldberg?" and then jumped right in and proceeded to answer that question. However, the reader should understand that in 1914 it simply did not take very long to give the answer. With so much good work yet to come, this article outlined the cartoonist's earliest employment record while making clear that he was already well known for his invention gags, which had already appeared in many papers across the United States.

Johnny Mathis (Coronet Magazine, 1957)

Here is a moving account of the meteoric rise of Johnny Mathis (b. 1935) - from an impoverished child of the San Francisco slums to the last of the great-American crooners.

"Johnny Mathis is just 23 years old , though he appears a hungry , vulnerable 17. When he sings a romantic ballad in high falsetto, his large eyes gaze out over the heads of the audience as if in search of someone."


Al Capone: Tax Evader (Chicagoan, 1931)

Preferring not to be found face-down in the Chicago River, this journalist wrote a very middle-of-the-road sort of article about Al Capone following the thug's 1931 conviction on tax evasion.
