About the author (1983)

Russell Lynes (1910-1991) was an art historian, cultural critic, author, photographer, and managing editor of "Harper's Magazine". His articles for "Harper's" and "Life" in 1949 made parsing American culture into highbrow, upper or lower middlebrow, and lowbrow a national pastime. He wrote many books, including "Snobs" and "The Tastemakers".
