I’m please to have this opportunity to write about Army Archerd. He’s a star reporter and a diligent detective.
Through the years it was Army who before anything was printed–and before even I knew–would tell me what pictures I would be assigned to; what travels I might undertake; any honors which might come my way.
His benevolent tentacles seemed to reach every part of our industry.
Why is Army so good at what he does? He’s a man of his word. He respects an off-the-record confidence. He’s honest, accurate and kind. He’s never out to hurt people. Rather, he’s made every effort to help them.
Another reason for Army’s success is his prodigious–you could call it elephantine–memory. He just never seems to forget anything he’s been told. In a profession not known for the qualities Army possesses, he is truly an exception.
Army, congratulations and best wishes. May you have many more years of able and honest columning.
