J. David Stern, New Owner of N. Y. Post, a Leader in Journalism and in Jewry

December 17, 1933

Modest, unassuming, not particularly prepossessing, of few words, is J. David Stern, whose acquisition last week of The N. Y. Evening Post has placed him in the front rank of American publishers. Behind these more or less neutral qualities is a dynamic personality, eyes that are restless, a mind that is quick for essentials, a fighter who knows the value of constant pummeling, a full-blooded American with a keen sense of fair play, an executive who is always one step—often more—ahead of his associates. If he tires the people who work with him it is not because he is unreasonable in his demands, but because they find it difficult to maintain his pace. To his seemingly boundless store of energy and to his square shooting are attributed his phenomenal rise—at the age of 47—from comparative obscurity to his present position of preeminence in American journalism.

Leaders in the fourth estate and in American government have kept an eye on J. David Stern since his acquisition of the Philadelphia Record five years ago; more so since he has demonstrated what a tremendous power for good along civic and political lines a newspaper can be, and how, in rendering this service, it revitalized itself even from the angle of financial returns.

By marriage J. David is related to the Lit family, having married Juliet Lit, daughter of Junker D. Lit—a woman of considerable literary attainment.

After graduating from the regular college course at the University of Pennsylvania (1906) he entered the University Law School and was graduated in 1909, with a splendid record as a student of the law.

But Stern was not to be a lawyer. Already the call of the newspaper kept ringing in his ears. Beginning at the very bottom of the ladder, he served in almost every capacity.

His Jewish interests were centered around the Y.M.H.A. In those days the Philadelphia “Y” was a sort of rendezvous, a club house, where the younger men of the older families would meet from time to time for what we might call today Jewish cultural advancement—debates, lectures, dramatics, not necessarily Jewish in content but under Jewish supervision. With a large number this was the extent of their Jewish interests and Jewish activity. Together with several others, Stern organized and was the first editor-
