“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Herb Caen (American Journalist)
Herbert Eugene Caen was a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist working in San Francisco. Born in Sacramento, California, Caen worked for the San Francisco Chronicle from the late 1930s until his death, with an interruption from 1950 to 1958 during which he wrote for the San Francisco Examiner. His collection of essays entitled Baghdad-by-the-Bay was published in 1949. He died of lung cancer in San Francisco and his funeral was one of the best-attended events in recent city history.
