Industry Achiever: Newt Wallace

Since 1947, 93-year-old Newt Wallace has been delivering papers for the Winters (Calif.) Express, a 2,300-circulation weekly. Wallace told The New York Times he still remembers shouting “Extra, extra, read all about it!” on street corners in Muskogee, Okla., in 1930.
