Bess Whitehead Scott
"It wasn't easy in those days for a
woman to get her foot in the city room
door. Bess made it because she under
stood one of the basic principles of the
newspaper business-everyone has a
story. You have only to discover it and
tell it well."-William P. Hobby
The first female reporter for the city
desk of the Houston Post recalls her experiences
as the only woman working
"city side" as well as the many individuals-Clark
Gable, Mary Pickford,
Lyndon Johnson-she met and befriended
during her long career. Her
story shows how courage, determination,
and hard work propelled her past
enormous obstacles-including that of
being a woman in a male-dominated
field. 208 pp. 19 b&w photos. $18.95
