Biographical or historical data
In 1944 Gladwin Hill joined the Associated Press as a World War II correspondent. Following the war, he joined the New York Times; by the time he retired in 1981 Hill had served as that newspaper's Los Angeles bureau chief for over twenty years. An astute observer and analyst of California politics, Hill in 1968 published "Dancing Bear: An Inside Look at California Politics," which has become a classic work on the state's modern political history. Hill's interest in and commitment to environmental issues led him to write two additional books: "Our Troubled Waters" (1971) and "Madman in a Lifeboat: Issues of the Environmental Crisis" (1973)
