Biography | show moreshow less
Raymond Gram Swing (1887-1968) was a journalist who first worked at a newspaper in 1906 with the Cleveland Press. Just seven years later, he was the Chicago Daily News bureau chief for the paper's Berlin, Germany department. His coverage of WWI, particularly Big Bertha and the Dardanelles campaign, established name recognition of the journalist nationwide. He shifted towards radio journalism, which is where he reported on WWII for the Mutual Broadcasting System. Swing strongly believed in gender and racial equality, so when his feminist and suffragist wife Betty Gram requested that both of them take both surnames, he agreed. They remained married from 1919-1944, but upon their divorce he had trouble shaking off her surname of Gram. He came to be known as Raymond Gram Swing during his heyday.
