“The Man of Yesterday” by Mary Holland Kinkaid, has been listed on EBay. Kinkaid, who died in 1948, is forgotten today, but was city editor of the Herald and is probably the first woman city editor of a Los Angeles newspaper, before Aggie Underwood, city of the Herald-Express, who is usually given the honor.
In 1933, Times columnist Alma Whitaker said Kinkaid was “the arch pioneer newspaper woman. In those days, she had to hand her copy in through a window in the editorial room door — no woman could be allowed to sully the sacred precincts.”
Bidding on “The Man of Yesterday” is listed as Buy It Now for $19.95.
