Pulitzer Prize Journalist and Former Chief of AP's Moscow Bureau
Report on Russia
Friday, 12:00 noon, October 2, 1953
Grand Ballroom, Hotel Sherman
Eddy Gilmore, who has covered the Kremlin, Moscow and Russia for the past eleven years, tells what it's been like inside Russia and what's been going on. During his long stay behind the Iron Curtain, this Pulitzer Prize journalist has become an expert on Soviet-American relations. He has watched these relations from our shaky alliance of World War II days through the marked hostility of the Korean War up to the present period of watchful alertness on both sides of the Curtain. Born in Alabama in 1907, he got his start as a newsboy. Ever since his graduation from Carnegie Tech back in the late 20s, Eddy Gilmore has been a journalist with a recognized capacity for getting the facts. In January, 1941 he went overseas with Wendell Willkie for his inspection tour of British defenses, and they became fast friends. The next winter found the intrepid Mr. Gilmore slogging through the freezing mud of the Russian front where he began his long coverage of the Soviet Union. He witnessed the savage fighting at Rostov and Stalingrad, and he reported how Russia balked the German push by moving entire cities and factories to safety behind the Urals. Eddy Gilmore is one of the few Americans to have traveled from the White Sea to the Black Sea, from the Baltic to the Caspian, from the Romanian front to the Bering Strait and from the Polish boundary to deepest Siberia. In Moscow he met a beautiful Russian-born ballerina and married her only after intervention in his behalf by Wendell Willkie to Premier Stalin. He has just arrived in the States with his wife and their two daughters, and is not going back. For an amazing, up-to-the-minute, intimate report on the USSR today, we urge you to hear Mr. Gilmore.
President John J. McDonough will preside
