J. W. Gitt: The Cold War's "Voice in the Wilderness." Journalism Monographs Number Ninety-One.
Hamilton, Mary Allienne
This journalism monograph deals with Josiah W. Gitt and his newspaper, "The Gazette and Daily," which existed from 1915 to 1970 and was referred to as "the voice in the wilderness" because of its stand on controversial issues. The monograph discusses the "Gazette and Daily," its views, Gitt's employees, the Progressives, the cold war, the red baiting of Gitt and his newspaper, the Wallace presidency, the Korean War, and the final years of the newspaper's existence (after 1950). The monograph points out that the "Gazette and Daily" became the only daily paper that consistently opposed postwar foreign policy, the only commercial daily newspaper in the nation to support Progressive Party candidate Henry Wallace's bid for the presidency, and the only tabloid newspaper to win the Ayer Cup, the all-class first prize for "excellence in typography, make-up and printing."
