"Journalism - 1908 opens a window on mass communication a century ago. It tells how the news media in the United States were fundamentally changed by the creation of academic departments and schools of journalism, by the founding of the National Press Club, and by exciting advances that included early newsreels, the introduction of halftones to print, and even changes in newspaper design." "Journalism - 1908 commemorates a century of progress in the media and, given the pace of Missouri's School of Journalism in that history, is an appropriate celebration of that school's centennial. It is a lode of information about journalism education history that will surprise even many of those in the field and marks a seminal year with lasting significance for the profession."--BOOK JACKET.
