Short biography
Harrison Salisbury was the first regular New York Times correspondent in Moscow (later bureau chief from 1949-1954) after the Second World War. Prior to that, he had spent 20 years with United Press International, much of it in the field, and was UPI's foreign editor during the last two years of the war. Salisbury constantly fought Soviet censorship to get the news out and won the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting in 1955. In addition, he wrote 29 books, including an autobiography.
