Biographical Note

Journalist John Ludlow "Jack" Gould (1914-1993), son of John Warren Dubois Gould and Evelyn Fisk Gould, worked for the New York Times from 1937 to 1972, where he covered show business, radio and television. Gould's reporting and criticism in the nation's most influential newspaper made him an important force as television evolved following World War II. His weekly Sunday column addressed many controversial issues affecting the news media, including censorship, the blacklist, and the social responsibility of broadcasters. He was married to Carmen Lewis Gould.
