The Heinz Files: Part One

W.C. Heinz was one of the great magazine writers of the 20th century. Thanks to his daughter Gayl, we are going to run a series featuring some of Heinz’s work. First up, the original manuscript for a Pepper Martin profile that appeared in True. The story ran in the October issue, 1959.

Now, dig Heinz’s original:

Heinz was a master. 'Nuff said.

What a coup. The master's work straight out of his typewriter. That's the way they did it in the old days, boys and girls. But there was only one Bill Heinz, just as there was only one Pepper Martin. How great to have them back again.

Right on, man. What amazing stuff. I feel like I'm in a beautiful time machine.
