Behind every silver-haired guy sitting at the table with a scrapbook on his lap and a plate of pretzels and dip at his elbows is one heck of a story. Hal shot movie footage of the A-bomb test on Bikini Atoll and can tell you what it's like to fly above a mushroom cloud. Joe snapped pictures of the Allies liberating German concentration camps. Donnie almost died, camera in hand. He got trapped on a hilltop in South Vietnam and watched the enemy cut down his platoon from 70 men to six.

BUSINESS
June 12, 1987 | THOMAS B. ROSENSTIEL, Times Staff Writer
To the personnel office, Janet Chusmir seemed a bad risk. She was a 33-year-old housewife with two adolescent kids and no job experience. It was 1963, and even though the job was just women's editor of the tiny Miami Beach Daily Sun, a community paper owned as a sideline by some executives of the Miami Herald, the word came down from personnel: Skip her. The Sun failed to take that advice.

She was the most famous "girl reporter" of her day, a Victorian Brenda Starr. Nellie Bly exposed political bribery. She got herself committed to New York's infamous Blackwell's Island Women's Lunatic Asylum to expose conditions inside. She raced around the world on steamers and trains in 72 days, beating Jules Verne's fictional Phileas Fogg. There was little she couldn't--and didn't--do. And she did it all with a self-promotional flamboyance that would make Geraldo pale.

Reilly, an authority on the Mexican-American War and journalism history, died Tuesday at his home in Burbank of prostate cancer.

Ann Babe knows her real name, birthday and hometown. That's because it was all included on the note left with her at the South Korean bus stop where she was abandoned as an infant in 1986. However, beyond the name of the orphanage where she was later adopted by an American couple, that's all she knew about her South Korean roots. The only way to find out more, Babe decided, was to return to the land of her ancestors. After graduating in 2008 from the University of Wisconsin with a triple major -- journalism, history and political science -- she became one of many ethnic Koreans raised abroad who return to explore their heritage.
MAGAZINE
November 20, 1988 | LEE GREEN, Lee Green's last story for this magazine was "The Pioneer Ultra-Athletes."
ON A SUNDAY morning in February, 1971, David Lifton sat quietly on a stainless-steel autopsy table in the morgue at Bethesda Naval Hospital near Washington. Could this be the table on which John F. Kennedy had lain just six hours after he had been shot in Dallas? Lifton wondered about that as he glanced around the antiseptic, windowless room and tried to envision the grim proceedings that occurred there the night of Nov. 22, 1963. His interest was far beyond ghoulish curiosity.

J. Stephen Czuleger, Superior Court judge, Los Angeles County: "Silicon Snake Oil: Second Thoughts on the Information Highway," by Clifford Stoll (Bantam/Doubleday). "Stoll's premise that computers don't confer wisdom is a topic long overdue for discussion. I've observed that overreliance on computer technology stifles human creativity and isolates us from society."
OPINION
July 5, 1987
I was shocked that an article in The Times (June 12), "Journalism History Made," didn't include one of the most famous, and I believe the first woman city editor of a major metropolitan newspaper, Agness Underwood. This lady, who was a legend in her own time, became city editor of the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner in 1947 where she had more than 40 reporters and 22 photographers working for her. In 1964 she was promoted to assistant managing editor and she retired in 1968.
