“Being a magazine editor in New York is a fine job as long as it lasts. But the time is always so short. It is astounding how tempus does fugit when one is editing a magazine. While on the job it is a merry occupation, calling authors by their first names, talking on awesome subjects and knocking off at 3 for orange pekoe. However, the editorial tenure is a house of sand — a summer breeze, a wash of the tide — and the editor comes to work some morning to find another with horn-rimmed classes more elegant occupying the throne.” — O.O. McIntyre, a widely read newspaper columnist of the day, 1919
A recent biography of O.O. "Odd" McIntyre is "An Odd Book," by R. Scott Williams.
