Flamboyant personalities and raucous journalism have been the stereotype of the newspaper world during the era covered in this DLB volume, but the early 20th century also marked a period of growth when newspapers were establishing reputations for solid, factual reporting of the news. The number of papers published in the United States peaked at 2,600 in 1915, then began to decline; their combined circulation, though, continued to increase (231% from 1900 to 1930).The 44 personalities profiled in this DLB volume are representative of the range of journalists from this age-from flashy and flamboyant newshounds to the publishing pioneers who helped to shape the course of journalism for generations to follow.44 entries include: Winifred Black, Arthur Brisbane, Irwin S. Cobb, Floyd Gibbons, William Randolph Hearst, Ben Hecht, Ring Lardner, Charles MacArthur, W.O. McGeehan, Frank A. Munsey, E.W. Scripps, Melville Stone and Henry Watterson.
