Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Daniel Seligman (September 25, 1924 - January 31, 2009) was an editor and columnist at Fortune magazine from 1950 to 1997. He also wrote for Forbes, Commentary, The American Mercury, Commonweal, and The New Leader. Seligman was born in Manhattan to Irving and Clare O'Brien Seligman on September 25, 1924. After serving in the United States Army during World War II, Seligman graduated New York University with a bachelor's degree from New York University. He wrote for The American Mercury, Commonweal, and The New Leader before being hired by Fortune magazine in 1950 as a writer. He later became an editor at Fortune, and in his final two decades at the publication before his retirement in 1997, he wrote more than 400 of the magazine's Keeping Up columns, even after stepping down as associate managing editor in 1988.[1] In a February 1988 editorial marking Seligman's transition to a contributing editor after 37 years at the magazine, the managing editor of Fortune, Marshall Loeb, described Seligman as "an acerbic slayer of (mostly liberal) prig-headedness ... [who] uses elegance and trenchant wit to wage his never-ending battle against fustian thinking."
