TLS (1933) explaining the meaning of one of his columns: "Man always lives by slogans and dies when deprived of them."
Typed Letter signed: "Heywood Broun", 1p, 7¼x10½. No place, 1933 May 25. To Mr. Ewert Lubin, New York City. In full: "Sorry to be so late answering your letter of March 7th. No, I didn't mean it as an allegory about the war. It was based on the general notion that man always lives by slogans and dies when deprived of them. Sincerely". Heywood Campbell Broun (1888-1939), who was married to feminist Ruth Hale Brown, is best known for his column "It Seems To Me", which was published in the "New York World" beginning in 1921. Broun had begun his journalistic career as a sports reporter for the "New York Morning Telegraph" in 1910. In 1912, he moved to the "New York Tribune", where he rose from sports writer to drama critic. Broun, who was a member of the famed Algonquin Round Table from 1919-1929, also contributed regular articles to such publications as "The Nation" and "The New Republic", and he edited a weekly publication and published several books. He ran unsuccessfully for Congress on the Socialist ticket in 1930. A founder of the American Newspaper Guild, Broun was elected as the first President of the organization in 1933. His son, Heywood Hale Brown, became a successful journalist in his own right. Lightly creased with folds, light vertical fold at the "w" of Heywood. Pencil notes (unknown hand) at upper right corner and on verso (no show through). Fine condition.
