Mary Llewellyn McNeil had no idea her journalism professor at Wake Forest University was behind newspaper articles that would help persuade the United States to enter World War II. He watch as Germany bombers devastated London and readers read his first hand accounts across the United States.

After Mary retired from The World Bank, a consulting job led her to London. The history major picked up a book on World War II and found her former professors name mentioned throughout its pages. That set her on a journey to chronicle his life and remind us what journalism is supposed to be.
