District Of Columbia, USA
Death: Sep. 25, 1975
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA

Journalist, Author. He is best known for his syndicated column "On the Line With Considine" and for co-writing Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo (1943, with Ted W. Lawson), the story of the Lieutenant Colonel James Doolittle's 1942 air raid on Japan that became a best-selling book, and "The Babe Ruth Story" (1948, with Lawrence Ritter). Born in Washington DC, he attended Gonzaga College High School and George Washington University there and worked for a while with the US government. In 1930 he began his journalism career with the Washington Herald, owned by media magnate William Randolph Hearst, as the newspaper's tennis reporter. He would later become a war correspondent with the International News Service, a predecessor to United Press International, with the advent of World War II. In 1955 he was a panelist on the television game show "Who Said That?"and then hosted on ABC by John Charles Daly, in which celebrities attempt to determine the speaker of a quotation in the recent news. With the creation of United Press International in 1958, he remained on the Hearst payroll, but his work was syndicated through the wire service. He continued to work for Hearst while writing his books and adapting some of them into screenplays. His other works include "MacArthur the Magnificent" (1942), "The Red Plot Against America" (1949), "Innocents at Home" (1950), "The Maryknoll Story" (1950), "The Panama Canal" (1951), "The Man Who Robbed Brink's (1961), "It's All News to Me" (1967), "Toots" (1969), and "The Remarkable Life of Armand Hammer" (1975). He died in Manhattan, New York City, New York at the age of 68. (bio by: William Bjornstad)
