William Allen White

William Allen White was one of the greatest journalists of all time. Beginning his career in 1892, as an editorial writer for the Kansas City Star, he brought an innovative approach to the world of journalism.

His straightforward coverage of controversial issues, combined with an often blunt writing style, set him apart from other journalists of his time.

White's legacy of excellent journalism continues today through the William Allen White School of Journalism at the University of Kansas.
