"I became a journalist to come as close as possible to the
heart of the world."
Henry Robinson Luce, (1898-1967), American publisher. Luce was
editor-in-chief of Time magazine from 1929 to 1964. He founded
Fortune magazine (1930), Life magazine (1936) and Sports Illustrated
Stephen Longstreet got Henry Luce's attention by writing a stinging
letter marked personal detailing the problems with Time magazine
and the fixes required. Mr. Luce agreed with much of what was
written and promptly hired Mr. Longstreet who worked under the
pen name "Thomas Burton".
