Biographical Note

Nicholas Thimmesch was born on November 13, 1927, in Dubuque, Iowa. He attended public and parochial schools before graduating from Dubuque Senior High School in 1944. Thimmesch served with the Merchant Marines from 1945 -- 1947 before returning to Iowa to attend Loras College and the University of Iowa. He received his B.A. in journalism from the University of Iowa in 1950. He married Wynora Susan Plum on April 17, 1953. They had three sons and two daughters. Nick Thimmesch died on July 11, 1985, in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

Thimmesch began his career as a reporter for the Davenport Times, leaving there to join the Des Moines Register in 1952. In 1955, he became a member of the staff of Time magazine, later becoming chief of its New York bureau. He became associated with Newsday as its Washington bureau chief where he began to write a column. In 1969, his column became nationally syndicated through the Los Angeles Times Syndicate. From 1976 to1978, he was a contributing editor for New York magazine. In 1981, Thimmesch became resident journalist at the American Enterprise Institute of Public Policy Research. While continuing to write his column, he worked on Communication for a Free Society, an Institute project, through which he moderated more than twenty public seminars on news media issues.
