Description
The Tom Mahoney Research Materials on Pancho Villa and the Mexican Revolution comprises materials related to an unpublished book by Mahoney with the working title "P-a-n-c-h-o V-i-l-l-a: Bandit...Rebel...Patriot...Satyr," which he began working on in the late 1920s. Included is a partial typescript for the book and a paste-up of photographic illustrations. Research materials include hand- or type-written notes and transcriptions; extensive files of clippings from revolution-era and post-revolution Mexican and American newspapers; related manuscripts and publications and research-related correspondence. Also included are research files on topics of interest to Mahoney, many of which relate to his book and magazine publications, such as The Great Merchants and The Story of Jewelry.
Background
The American newspaperman, author and public relations executive, John Thomas (Tom) Mahoney was born in Dallas, Texas on December 3, 1905. His initial college career, at Southern Methodist University, was cut short when he was expelled from the school following the publication of The Dinkey, an April Fools' Day campus newspaper, in 1924. Mahoney resumed his studies at the School of Journalism, University of Missouri, where he lettered in track and was sports editor of The Savitar, the university's yearbook.
