Today is the 4th of February, 1987. This is Jessica Holland.
We're at 870 U.N. Plaza. This is for the Columbia Oral History
Collection. Would you state and spell your full name.
I'm Andrew Heiskell, spelled H-E-I-S-K-E-L-L.
I wanted to--we were in the middle of discussing the board
yesterday. And I wanted to ask you about a couple of board members.
I was just wondering about a couple of the board members, whether or
not they had in fact asserted more influence than board members
normally do. And they're from two different periods, starting out
with Tex Moore, from the earlier period. What, in general, was
his--how did he effect Time?
Being very conservative--I'm not talking about politics
now, but conservative in terms of management, in terms of getting
involved in new projects, in terms of having a conservative financial
position, stance, and obviously had leverage by virtue of being
Harry's brother-in-law. Harry had great confidence in him,
recognized the fact that he was very, very conservative, but sort of
liked having somebody around like Tex Moore--conservative--just sort
of to play safe, to make sure that we didn't go off the deep end.
