Letter to the Editor
Monday, July 7, 2014, 9:00 p.m.
 

Years ago when I first moved to Pittsburgh, I was interviewed in a rail car at Station Square for an editor/writer position in a new publication Mr. Richard Scaife was considering — a tabloid called “Pennsylvania Economy.”

In my first years in the Pittsburgh region I ran into Mr. Scaife quite a few times. He'll always be known for his contributions to the conservative efforts, but his heart was always with Pittsburgh and the region.

When one really considers his accomplishments, I believe that historians (though they will mention his conservative slants) will more likely place his life and career up there with another muckraker — William Randolph Hearst.
