Paul Coates, 1959

Jan. 13, 1959: Paul Coates worked himself into an early grave. In addition to writing six columns a week for the L.A. Mirror, he also had a show on KTTV-TV Channel 11. It was definitely another era. In this piece, he talks about his TV interview with Soviet Deputy Premier Anastas Mikoyan, whose arrival in L.A. brought out crowds of protesters.

Coates’ column originally appeared in the L.A. Mirror in 1959 and was published on latimes.com in 2009. It’s available via Archive.org.
