Reporter Milton Esterow Has a Lifetime of Stories and Still More to Tell

From a Times Insider column by Emmett Lindner headlined “A Lifetime of Stories, and Still More to Tell”:

In 1938, an article in The Monthly Star Eagle reported that a truck had crashed into a car on New Lots Avenue in Brooklyn.

The writer was a 10-year-old boy, Milton Esterow. The publisher was, too: The young, dogged reporter had created the newspaper, made 18 copies and sold them to friends for 2 cents a pop. Each was one page, written by hand.
