H. L. Mencken discusses The Diary of H.L. Mencken.

Charles Fecher, editor of the controversial book The Diary of H.L. Mencken, discussed the life of H.L. Mencken and his work in publishing Mencken's diary. A newspaper man, magazine editor, author, and critic, H.L. Mencken donated his personal writings to a Baltimore library upon his death in the 1950's, with the stipulation to make them publicly available after 25 years. Mencken's anti-semitic statements contained in his diary created a controversy. The editor of The American Mercury, an influential magazine of the 1920's and 30's, Mencken remains as one of the most influential personalities in American journalism. (timspalding)… (more)
