Overview

Helen Thomas, the dean of White House correspondents, worked her first year as a copy 'boy' tearing stories off wire service machines during the newsmaking days of World War II.

These and other outstanding journalists recall their first year adventures and offer inspiring, entertaining tales of days and nights spent in the reporting trenches and behind cluttered editorial desks.
