Walter Briggs was a skilled observer of history and the people who made it.  His experience in all phases of the publishing and communications industry was extensive:  he served for more than twenty years as foreign correspondent in the Far East for United Press and the New York Herald-Tribune, including the turbulent, war-torn years between 1940 and 1960.  Later, after working as writer, correspondent, and editor for NBC News in New York, he moved to New Mexico and was the editor of New Mexico Magazine from 1967 to 1974.  He then moved to California, which was his home until his death.
