David Lawrence was an American magazine and news service founder, editor, columnist, and author. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1888, Lawrence spent his childhood in Buffalo, New York, and graduated from Princeton University in 1910. While at Princeton, Lawrence was active in campus journalism and garnered the attention of the Associated Press, which hired him upon graduation. He covered political and international affairs for the AP until 1916, when he became the Washington correspondent for the New York Evening Post . In 1926, Lawrence founded the United States Daily, the first publication to be dedicated solely to national affairs. In 1947, this publication merged with another and evolved into the popular weekly news magazine U.S. News and World Report . Lawrence covered some of the most seminal issues that arose in the 20th century, including World War I, World War II, and domestic crises within the United States. He authored several books and wrote a nationally syndicated column that generally expounded a conservative opinion. Lawrence died in 1973.
