Journalists who left an impression on people's lives

Recommended Posts

James Earle Breslin (October 17, 1928 – March 19, 2017)


Breslin’s column about the grave digger, a man named Clifton Pollard, who told the lone reporter who approached him how honored he was to be digging the grave for the fallen President, became part of journalism history.



When I reminded Breslin, who never finished college, that his outside-the-box gravedigger’s story is taught in every journalism school in the country he came alive. “Yes! They should, too,” he exclaimed. “It’s the gravedigger’s theory.”




Breslin credited his go-it-alone approach to his days starting out as a young sports reporter for the old Long Island Press and the Journal-American, in the nineteen-fifties. “You always went to the losers’ dressing room,” he said. “That’s where the story was.”
