More on Dorothy Thompson

In a column last month, I introduced readers to Dorothy Thompson (1893-1961). Now I’d like to return to the subject and give her views a closer look.

Thompson became the first American journalist to interview Hitler (in 1931) and the first to be expelled from Nazi Germany (in 1934). As a radio broadcaster, widely syndicated newspaper columnist, and foreign correspondent, she earned a reputation as America’s “First Lady of Journalism” by 1940.
