A historic flood, beyond the 500-year flood level, inundated Cedar Rapids on my third day as editor. My staff excelled in coverage, including this double-truck front page, winning lots of awards, including the Sigma Delta Chi Award for Deadline Reporting.
One of the best stories of my career was the story of the lives of the four people in this Pulitzer Prize-winning photo by Earle "Buddy" Bunker: Bob and Dorothy Moore, their daughter Nancy and their nephew Michael Croxdale. http://www.scribd.com/doc/57824432/The-Homecoming
On Iowa caucus night in 1980, I was the primary editor on the Republican story. Here we call George H.W. Bush the winner on deadline, with, from left, Dan Petersen, Paul Leavitt, Merrill Perlman, Michael Gartner, Jim Gannon, Jim Flansburg and Arnie Garson helping/watching. As an editor and reporter for four different newspapers, I have covered seven Iowa caucus campaigns: http://stevebuttry.wordpress.com/2012/01/03/memories-of-covering-seven-iowa-caucuses-in-four-decades/
