Collection Description

Historical Note

Donald Arthur Schanche (1926-1994) was born in New Brunswick, New Jersey, to Carl and Anna Shennum Schanche. He was raised in Atlanta, Georgia. He Married Marybelle Waddington in 1952. Schanche attended Georgia Tech and the University of Miami. He then graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in journalism in 1950. During World War II he served in the U.S. Navy as radioman with a P.T. boat squadron in the Pacific.

He was a freelance writer for numerous magazines and also an editor for Life, Saturday Evening Post, and Holiday. Schanche worked for the International News Service as a Korea war correspondent from 1949-1952. He was an author of several books, as well as being a foreign correspondent for the Los Angeles Times in the Cairo Bureau (1976-1981), Rome Bureau (1982-1987) and the Caribbean Bureau (1987-1991).

He wrote six books in total. Of these, some of the more prominent were "Mister Pop: The Adventures of a Peaceful Man in a Small War" and "The Panther Paradox: A Liberal's Dilemma."

Scope and Content

The collection consists of correspondence, writings, books, magazines, article photographs, contact prints, negatives, and several types of audio tapes (including interview and answering machine tapes). There is some family correspondence, most of which is business-related. The correspondence includes a section regarding the trial of Wallace Butts versus Curtis Publishing Company.
