Overview

Despotic, tragic, and yet mesmerizing, newspaper editor Charles E. Chapin ruled the evening press in that bygone era when it was the CNN of the pre-electronic world of journalism.

The Rose Man of Sing Sing traces the rise and fall of this iconic newspaperman, a life so extraordinary that today journalists still recount the myths it generated.
