Quentin Reynolds

Quentin James Reynolds (April 11, 1902 New York City – March 17, 1965 San Francisco, California) was a journalist and World War II war correspondent.

As associate editor at Collier's Weekly from 1933 to 1945, Reynolds averaged twenty articles a year. He also published twenty-five books, including The Wounded Don’t Cry, London Diary, Dress Rehearsal, and Courtroom, a biography of lawyer Samuel Leibowitz.

After World War II, Reynolds was best known for his libel suit against Hearst columnist Westbrook Pegler (see Reynolds v. Pegler), who called him "yellow" and an "absentee war correspondent". Reynolds won $175,001, at the time the largest libel judgment ever. The trial was later made into a Broadway play, A Case of Libel.

In 1953, Reynolds was the victim of a major literary hoax when he published The Man Who Wouldn’t Talk, the supposedly true story of a Canadian war hero who claimed to have been captured and tortured by German soldiers. When the hoax was exposed, Random House, Reynolds’ publisher, reclassified the book as a novel.
