The First Post

All —

I just learned about Van McKenzie, the great sports editor, and his failing health. He spent a couple of hours on the phone with me one morning in the summer of 2005, helping with information about The National for a paper I was writing in an effort to complete my master’s degree in journalism from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.

Inspired by that, I’m creating this blog so that I can showcase the paper that I wrote and hopefully allow people to learn about the late, great, daily sports newspaper.

Thanks for reading,

Dan Friedell
