Heywood Broun was a crusading columnist for The Tribune and The World in New York City from 1912 until 1939. Just months before his death in 1939, Broun wrote: "I would like to see some columnists do the side streets and the suburbs and chronicle the joys and tragedies of the ordinary run of people."
