This Day at the New Yorker

Not a shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious. - Brendan Gill

Writer and editor Brendan Gill born on this day in 1914 in Hartford, Connecticut.
Gill worked at the New Yorker for more than 60 years.

Staff Writer Joseph Mitchell claims in his unfinished third chapter of his memoir that he started living in the past on this day in 1968.
