NEW COLLEGE SARASOTA, FLORIDA 33578 1 117 -2/20/68 813 / 355-7131 Ref.: Furman c. Arthur FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE SARASOTA--A veteran newsman who has reported on some of the world's hottest battlegrounds will describe news coverage in Vietnam and Korea in a public talk at New College tonight (Wednesday) at 8 p.m. Robert C. Eunson, now assistant general manager for Associated Press, will give his talk in the main dining room of Hamilton Center. The public is invited. Eunson covered the Korean fighting and directed the AP coverage of both that war and, as chief of the Tokyo bureau of the wire service, the Vietnam conflict. In 27 years with the wire service, Eunson reported on World War II battles in the Pacific, where he landed with assault troops, and in Europe when he joined the u.s. forces in their advance across Germany. It was Eunson's task to write the bulletin announcing the signing of the armistice at Panmunjon in Korea and he had overall supervision of the coverage of fighting in Vietnam. -more


NEW COLLEGE Page 2 Eunson, from his present post as an AP executive, has a good knowledge of the news coverage of both the national and international events. He said that he will discuss the news coverage of events without touching on the politics of each. The wire service veteran began his journalism career in Arizona in 1936 editing several newspapers there before joining Associated Press in 1941 and receiving his wartime assignments. After the war, he was assigned to bureaus in Brussels, Paris, New York, and in 1950 the Tokyo bureau. Except for a stint as chief of the San Francisco bureau, he has been covering the Far East since 1950. Eunson also is a writer and his published books include a story of Korea's air battles, "MIG Alley," a fictionalized account of a u.s. serviceman tried for murder in Japan,"Trial at Odawara," and "The Pearl King," the story of the Japanese who discovered how to make cultured pearls. The latter is now under consideration for a movie. Eunson spoke to the Ringling Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association Monday and met informally with New College students today. 30 -
