A Foot in the Door: The Reminiscences of Lucile McDonald
Washington State University Press, 1995 - Biography & Autobiography - 295 pages
"A newspaperman once wrote of Lucile Mc Donald, "She can secure and absorb more information per minute than any other newspaper representative we have ever met in half a century." A remarkably frank, refreshing reminiscence, A Foot in the Door details the life and work of a true journalistic pioneer. At a time when a woman's role in newspapers was limited mostly to the society page, Mc Donald began a remarkable seventy-five-year career as a noted journalist, historian, and author of thirty-four books." "A Foot in the Door is not only the story of a pioneering American woman journalist, it is also the tale of a great adventure to South America, the Middle East, Alaska, and virtually every outback locale in the Pacific Northwest, written by a woman who allowed no obstacle to stand in the way of finding a good story."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
