Series IX: McCall’s , 1935-1941

Lorentz had a long-running collaboration with the editors at McCall’s, having contributed film reviews to the magazine since the mid-1930s. In 1937, his lyrical essay about the flooding of the Mississippi – a piece of writing that eventually became the narration for The River – initially appeared there as a lead editorial. In the spring of 1941, he helped edit a series of special issues dedicated to questions of national defense. As usual, he was in stride with the needs of the administration in Washington, D.C., which was transitioning from domestic reforms to international preparedness.
