Because in one of the books it states that Shepley was the one
who--Shepley and Donovan were the ones who really weighed in hard for
Hunt. That could be inaccurate.
Donovan weighed in for Hunt. I don't remember Shepley
even being in the picture.
I wasn't sure, because--I think I was really more for
Wooton. And the reason I was for Wooton goes back to what I was
talking about earlier, namely, I didn't think that LIFE could succeed
by being primarily a news magazine. It had to find other ways of
doing it and Wooton was much more of a project-oriented editor. He
didn't have the charisma that Hunt had. Hunt turned out--well, Hunt
was a Marine and he carried on the Marine tradition throughout his
entire reign. But Wooton might have been better in terms of dreaming
up big acts.
Do you remember that 1969 silver anniversary party?
No. Where was it?
I guess it was in New York.
