Here Is Our Ernie Pyle.
Letterman, Gretchen
This document contains a biographical sketch of Ernie Pyle, the Pulitzer Prizewinning journalist from Indiana who gained fame during World War II as a nationally syndicated correspondent for the Associated Press. The story of Pyle's life is traced from his birth in Dana, Indiana, through his college years and his early years as a roving reporter for the "Washington Daily News," and concludes with his experiences as a war correspondent and his death while covering an invasion in the Pacific. (The original presentation of this sketch included a slide show compiled from pictures taken by the author and from a collection of pictures at Indiana University.) (RB)
