Summary and Info
Now celebrating its centennial, the world's first journalism school was founded by a newsman who lacked a college education. Weinberg draws on internal documents and correspondence to uncover the politics of the School from its founding to the present--the struggles over resources as well as the constant battle to balance scholarly ambitions with professional mission. This account embraces faculty and staff members, students and alumni, supporters and detractors, as it covers all professional sequences taught at the School. It captures the freewheeling debate that has been a hallmark of the School and incorporates a wealth of insider detail, from a typical day at the School during the Williams era to tales of the Missouri Mafia.
