Biographical/Historical note:
Captain Alfred Friendly (1911-1983) graduated from Amherst College in 1933 and began work for the US Department of Commerce. From 1935 to 1936, he traveled around the United States with his friend Chalmers M. Roberts, which he described in a book entitled "The Trek: or, Adventures in Depression America." Friendly was hired as a reporter for the Washington Daily News (later the Washington Post) until World War II, when he served in the Military Intelligence Service. He helped to transform The Washington Post into a national publication while serving as its managing editor (1955-1965). From his retirement as managing editor until 1971, Friendly worked as a roving reporter for the Post and won a Pulitzer Prize in journalism for his coverage of the 1967 Arab-Israeli War.
