Washington merry-go-round by Drew Pearson( Book )

21 editions published between 1931 and 1933 in 3 languages and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For most of three decades, Drew Pearson was the most well-known journalist in the United States. In his daily newspaper column--the most widely syndicated in the nation--and on radio and television broadcasts, he chronicled the political and public policy news of the nation. At the same time, he worked his way into the inner circles of policy makers in the White House and Congress, lobbying for issues he believed would promote better government and world peace. Pearson, however, still found time to record his thoughts and observations in his personal diary. Published here for the first time, Washington Merry-Go-Round presents Pearson's private impressions of life inside the Beltway from 1960 to 1969, revealing how he held the confidence of presidents--especially Lyndon B. Johnson--congressional leaders, media moguls, political insiders, and dozens of otherwise unknown sources of information. His direct interactions with the DC glitterati, including Bobby Kennedy and Douglas MacArthur, are featured throughout his diary, drawing the reader into the compelling political intrigues of 1960s Washington and providing the mysterious backstory on the famous and the notorious of the era."--

Allen, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin School of Journalism best known for his association with Drew Pearson, 1932-1942, in the nationally-syndicated column, "Washington Merry-Go-Round," and for his own column, "Inside Washington," published from 1949 to 1977. The collection includes mimeographed releases of his columns, microfilmed news stories written for the Philadelphia Record (1936-1942), a treatment for a film biography of General George S. Patton with whom Allen had served during World War II, freelance articles, radio scripts, and other writings. Several folders concern Allen's book, "Lucky Forward," about the Third Army and the plagiarism suit he brought against Patton biographer Ladislas Farago. An extensive reporter's journal, 1941-1977, documents private conversations and interviews with the nation's leading political figures, 1941-1942 and 1949-1972.
