Sample text

From the start, the newspaper did not aggrandize Walter Williams; he is not mentioned significantly even once during the first two weeks. That counted as a positive. Some days, though, frustration overtook the editors, who worried that a newspaper produced within a university setting would exercise self-censorship. Unfortunately for the cause of truth, the Missourian editors shied away from publishing controversial information. Charles G. Ross, one of the initial editors, wrote to a confidante on October 8, 1908, “There is no real news in Columbia that would interest you; indeed, there is no real news of any kind.

When he knew he would be absent, he told the other members to elect another dictator for the day. After a year of Journalism School operations, Williams could point to the first graduate—Charles Arnold of Ashland, Missouri. He had earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Missouri in 1907, then remained in Columbia to serve an apprenticeship at the Columbia Herald with Williams. Williams persuaded Arnold to enroll for a second bachelor’s degree, one that would give the young man a special place in the history of journalism education.

Williams used his connections from journalism, church, and fraternal groups to help place students overseas, at the Japan Advertiser in Tokyo (to which at least two dozen Missouri journalism degree holders would gravitate) as well as at numerous Chinese news organizations. Internationalism became a cornerstone of Williams’s life, and thus of the Journalism School, which at times seemed like an extension of himself. After the Journalism School ended its initial academic year, Williams traveled to Montreal, sailing from there to Liverpool, England, then returning to Montreal on September 13 before trekking back to Columbia.
