Luce was not satisfied with simply maintaining a publishing domain- he saw his media empire as a source of power and the ability to formulate ideas and policies for the public, to influence the public’s view of politics, business, international relations, culture, sport and the arts. His urbane wife, Clare Boothe Luce, a gifted writer, playwright, editor and ambassador to Italy, was his equal. Henry Luce rubbed shoulders with some of the 20th century’s most recognizable luminaries and competed with powerful tycoons like William Randolph Hearst. The Luce story is one of a rising star, reaching unprecedented heights before losing some of its luster, a fascinating tale from beginning to end. [1,284-word Titans of Fortune article]
