Those were the days… After getting out of the Army in 1960 and setting his sights on journalism, James Oliver Goldsborough enrolled in law school at UC Berkeley.
An Army buddy called from Daly City, just south of San Francisco, with great news. “We’ve just fired the assistant managing editor for drinking in the toilet. Would you like to try out?” his friend asked.
After a six-month stint in Daly City, Goldsborough moved to the San Francisco Examiner, where he was a cub reporter.
