John Rosenfield’s Dallas is a biography of the legendary amusements editor of the Dallas Morning News who from 1925 to 1966 reigned as the cultural czar of Dallas. The book gives extensive coverage to all of the arts–symphony, opera, the dramatic arts, film and ballet–as they developed in Dallas over these decades. There is interesting detail about many of the internationally famous artists who visited the city as well as about the development of local cultural institutions.

From the Publisher:

John Rosenfield’s Dallas is a well-researched, very readable biography of a man and of his city, written by a distinguished historian, Ronald L. Davis. The reader should be fascinated with this account of how an idealistic man, determined to upgrade the cultural consciousness of his hometown, manages to do that between the 1920s and 1960s.
