John O'Hara, Editor
Frank Zachary, the legendary editor and art director of Holiday magazine and Town & Country, who died earlier this month, once had another party who was equally --if not more -- interested in the lifestyles of the rich: John O'Hara.
According to The New York Times obit (14 June) by Robert D. McFadden, 'After graduating from high school in Rankin, Pa., [Zachary] got a job with the weekly Pittsburgh Bulletin Index as a reporter-photographer. In 1933, his editor briefly was John O'Hara, who soon quit to finish is first novel "Appointment in Samarra." Using Mr. O'Hara's contacts in New York, Mr. Zachary became a part-time Pittsburgh correspondent for Time, Life and Fortune magazines.'
