With a background of journalistic experience that has taken him all the way from San Francisco to Rome, with Canada, London, Paris and Lucerne as stopping-off points, John B. Kennedy began telling the public of the things he had seen and heard simultaneously in print and speech. Having covered everything from a Chicago bad-lands murder to a Papal coronation he has a well-developed eye for the color of life.
A Specialist In Personalities
Above all, he has specialized in personalities, holding what is probably a record for interviews with all sorts and conditions of men and women—from old-time pugilists like Jake Kilrain and Sam Langford to talented beauties like Jane Cowl, Jean Eagels and Katherine Cornell, and to men of wide business importance like John D. Rockefeller, Jr., or a great educator like the late Charles W. Eliot.
The New York Herald-Tribune called Mr. Kennedy's five-minute weekly radio talks The biggest little feature on the air, and his connection with the Collier's Radio Hour (he's associate editor of Collier's Weekly) and other radio productions has brought him a nation-wide audience.
Prominent In Relief Work
Mr. Kennedy received his preparatory education in England, Canada and in the United States as a student at St. Louis University. He specialized in philosophy. He was prominently identified with the relief work of Herbert Hoover during the war, and for his activities he received the following decorations: Officer of the French Academy; Star of Morrocco (another French decoration), and Knight of Leopold, and honor conferred by Belgium.
