Hello all!

I'm hoping to find people who either know a great deal about American journalism in the 60's, or, ideally, know something about journalist Paul Avery (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Avery). I'm in the preliminary stages of writing his biography and any and all opinions, information or photographs would be tremendously helpful.

Thank you!

I assume you've seen the movie Zodiac, just for the movie version of his life (I have no idea how true to the facts the movie was).

Yep! It's a good film; Downey Jr. is as talented as anyone of our generation, and his portrayal, from what I've gathered, was generally appreciated by Avery's friends and family. They even wanted to bring Avery's ashes to the set.
