Eric Sevareid
American Journalist

Issue Date:  April 22, 2008
City:  Washington, DC

American journalist Eric Sevareid (1912-1992) began his career as a newsman reporting for the Minneapolis Journal.  With war looming in Europe, he traveled to Paris and worked for the Herald Tribune until recruited by Edward R. Murrow as a CBS radio correspondent.  It was Sevareid who informed Americans of France’s fall to Germany in 1940. 

Fleeing from France, he next reported on the Battle of Britain from the bombed-out streets of London.  Sevareid continued to cover World War II, reporting on the Italian campaign, and camping with Tito and his Yugoslavian followers.  Sevareid was with the first Americans to land in France, and stayed with them all the way to Germany.  On his way to Asia to cover the war there, he had to parachute from his disabled plane and became lost in a Burmese jungle. 

After the war, Sevareid’s reporting on the founding of the United Nations and an interview with U.N. Ambassador Adlai Stevenson earned him one of his many journalistic awards.  When television began to replace radio news, Sevareid joined Walter Cronkite on the CBS Evening News, where he became well known for his insightful analysis. 

In 2008, Eric Sevareid was honored with a 42¢ U.S. postage stamp, part of the five-stamp American Journalist se-tenant.
