Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said that "the ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." Regardless of the odds, the strength of the foe or how entrenched and imposing the barrier, Bob Maynard always stood unflinchingly tall for a free and objective press, journalistic and personal integrity, diversity in the workplace and above all protecting the interest of the "little guy." His place in history as a pioneer is secure, but the ultimate measure of his legacy will be defined by the willingness of his students, journalists, executives and others he touched through personal deeds to practice what he preached and by transmitting his ideals and principles to future generations.

Robert Maynard Hutchins was one of those larger-than-life men of vision about whom Americans like to boast in retrospect, but who in life receive more than their share of misunderstanding, criticism and indeed vituperation from their fellow-citizens. Hutchins, to be sure, gave at least as good as he got. His long and extraordinarily distinguished career as one of America's great educators began at age 24 as secretary of the Yale Corp.

Oakland Tribune editor Pearl Stewart has resigned from the troubled paper because of what she called a personality conflict with the man who hired her and who has returned as editor in chief after a seven-month absence. Stewart, the first black woman to become editor of a major U.S. metropolitan daily, said she respected the ability of David Burgin, her former boss, but that "it is not possible for me to work with" him.
