Biography of Paul Scott Mowrer

Pulitzer Prize-winning foreign correspondent, newspaper editor, and poet.

Paul Scott Mowrer was born in Bloomington, Illinois, on July 14, 1887, to Rufus and Nell Scott Mowrer. The family later moved to Chicago, where Mowrer attended Hyde Park High School. He began writing poetry at age 14, and also contributed to the school newspaper, The Spectator. After graduating in 1905, Mowrer worked briefly as a picture chaser for the Chicago Daily News before attending the University of Michigan. After a few years of college he returned to the Chicago Daily News in 1908 to work as a reporter.

In 1910, Mowrer was sent to Paris at the age of 22 as part of the Chicago Daily News' nascent foreign news service. He remained for twenty-four years, covering the the first Balkan War in 1912-1913, then directing the Daily News war service in France during World War I, and the Paris Peace Conference of 1919. In 1924, Mowrer traveled to the Rif area of Morocco to report on the region's war with Spain. Mowrer published his first books during this time: the poetry volumes Hours Of France (1918) and The Good Comrade (1923), as well as the political analyses Balkanized Europe: A Study In Political Analysis And Reconstruction (1921) and Our Foreign Affairs: A Study In National Interest And The New Diplomacy (1924).

While overseas, Mowrer was awarded the French Légion d'honneur in 1918, and was promoted to Officer in 1933. In 1929, he also received the first Pulitzer Prize awarded for foreign reporting.

Mowrer was married to Winifred Adams from 1909-1932, and the couple had two children: Richard Scott, born in 1911 and David Adams, born in 1912. In 1933 Mowrer married Hadley Richardson Hemingway, previously the first wife of Ernest Hemingway.

The couple left Europe in 1934 for Chicago, where Mowrer became chief editorial writer of the Chicago Daily News, then editor from 1935-1944. In 1944, Mowrer accepted a position as the foreign editor of the New York Post in Paris, and also briefly established a Paris edition of the paper called the Paris Post. Mowrer also published a volume of poetry, Poems Between Wars, in 1942 as well as his autobiography, The House of Europe, in 1945.

In order to focus on his poetry, Mowrer retired from newspaper work in 1947 and the couple returned to the United States, relocating to Chocorua, New Hampshire in 1949. During this time Mowrer wrote numerous articles and published nine books of poetry: On Going To Live In New Hampshire, 1953; And Let The Glory Go, 1955; Twenty-one And Sixty-five, 1958; The Mothering Land, 1959, High Mountain Pond, 1962; School For Diplomats, 1964; This Teeming Earth, 1965; The Island Ireland, 1966; and The Poems of Paul Scott Mowrer 1918-1966, 1968. He also published two volumes for theater: Fifi; Or, Something Entirely New; A Comedy In One Act in 1956 and Six Plays in 1967.

In 1967, Mowrer was named the first poet laureate of New Hampshire, and in 1969 wrote the poem "New Hampshire Hills," which was set to music and later designated an honorary state song. Paul Scott Mowrer died in 1971, en route to New Hampshire from a vacation in South Carolina.
