Before the day ends, we wanted to wish one of our favorite journalists of yore a very happy birthday. William L. Shirer, one of the original Murrow Boys and author of “Berlin Diary” and “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich,” would be 101 today.

When he died in 1993, The Times of London wrote that “William Shirer belongs to that select group of journalists who successfully made the transition from the recording of news to the writing of history.”
