George B. de (George Bernard) Huszar (1919-1968) was born in Bern, Switzerland and became a naturalized citizen of the United States after immigrating in 1937. He was connected with the University of Chicago from 1939 to 1948 as a research assistant and then a fellow of the Department of Political Science and the Committee of International Relations. During this period he also worked in various editorial capacities in Chicago and authored or co-authored books and textbooks on international issues. His association with the Chicago Tribune began in the late 1940s with his work as a research assistant on Frank Hughes's book, Prejudice and the Press (New York: Devin-Adair, 1950), a counterattack to the 1947 report of the Hutchins-Luce commission on Freedom of the Press.
