Pyle, Ernest (Ernie) Taylor


Pyle, Ernest (Ernie) Taylor
(1900-1945)
   Famous war correspondent Ernie Pyle was born in Indiana. He did not complete his studies at the University of Indiana, but after brief service in the navy in 1918, he began work in newspapers. After working with the Washington Daily News, Pyle moved to New York City to write for the New York Evening World and Evening Post. He returned to Washington, D. C., to become editor of the Daily News from 1932 to 1935, before becoming a roving reporter for the Scripps Howard newspaper chain. In 1940, Pyle went to Great Britain to cover the “Blitz,” and after 1941 he was a war correspondent with the U.S. Army in Europe, Africa, and Asia during World War II. His reports of the life of ordinary soldiers captured the imagination of the public, and he was dubbed “the most widely read correspondent.” His collected reports were published as Ernie Pyle in England (1941), Here Is Your War: The Story of G.I. Joe (1943), and Brave Men (1944). Pyle was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his writing in 1944 but was killed in the fighting in Okinawa in 1945.
