Excerpt from Heywood Broun: A Biographical Portrait A foreword is often an apology for what you are about to read, a defense of the Views expressed in the book and an explanation of just why the book was written. Heywood never made or needed one; his writings ex plained themselves. Even when whimsical or mystic, they were tied tight to life. He kept a strong hold on truth as it was given him to see truth. He projected a spirit of under standing and fellowship. Reading Broun you wanted to know him; knowing Broun you wanted to read him. Heywood was a great figure in contemporary journalism. I feel a warm glow of satisfaction when I recall that he came over to the World (the old World) to ask me for a job, saying the World was the kind of paper he wanted to work on. I put him on the staff and he held his job with the World longer than he did a job with any other paper, either before or afterward. To feel great friendship for a man does not mean you must agree with all his opinions. Heywood had the gift of making anyone he liked feel he was his best friend. I fell in that category, although there were many things about which Hey wood and I quarreled pleasantly. He was a skilled debater and never lost his temper. Heywood died too soon, but even in the comparatively short time he was at work he brought a deep affection to those who knew him and left the world a little better than he found it.
