Reporter and columnist. She was the first woman on the New York Times editorial board (1936) and the first woman to win the Pulitzer prize for correspondence (1937). From 1936 to 1954 she was "freedom editor" on the editorial board of the New York Times and wrote three columns per week, which were widely read in the United States, Europe and Asia. She interviewed and analyzed for the Times: Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin, Churchill, De Valera, Dolfuss, Schuschnigg, Popes Pius XI and XII, Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, and reported how they affected and were seen by ordinary people. She also reported on American political conventions and the Depression. President Eisenhower called her "a truly great reporter, respected at home and abroad for her keen analysis and impartial presentation." She was a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor and received honorary degrees from Columbia, Fordham, Ohio State, Dayton and New York Universities and Elmira, Manhattan, Middlebury, Villanova, Lafayette, Smith, Wellesley, Mount St. Vincent, Wilson and Rollins Colleges and the New Jersey College for Women (Times obituary 30 May 1954).
