American publisher, a born writer and story-teller and the world famous publisher and editor of the Emporia Gazette in Kansas. Bill White was a friend of just about everyone that shaped American history, present at the "old West" of the mid-century. He himself was an unforgettable personality, naive and open, generous and warm-hearted, shrewd and perceptive in his chronicles. He saw Indians, the rush of settlement across the plains and the makings of the Mississippi region, relating it all in his autobiography.
As a novelist and biographer, he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for the best editorial in 1922.
