William Allen White (1868-1944)
Newspaper Editor
Born in Emporia, Kansas, White studied at the Emporia College and the University of Kansas. White became a very influential newspaper editor for the Emporia Gazette – a small-town newspaper. Larger newspapers across the U.S. reprinted White’s well-written and influential editorials. He gained fame in 1896 for his editorial, “What’s the Matter with Kansas?” which criticized the Populist political movement growing in that state. White won the Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing in 1923, and his autobiography won the Pulitzer Prize in 1947.
