Photograph article dated November 3, 1962 partially reads, "A national news magazine once referred to Bob Reuben as 'the last of a vanishing breed of death-defying correspondents...' He was the first correspondent to land in Normandy on D-Day; the first to arrive in Paris the night before its liberation; the first to go into Belgium and Germany; and the first to file a story out of Tokyo when U.S. occupation forces landed. In addition, he covered the Japanese surrender aboard the USS Missouri, the Manchurian War in China and Asia, and accompanied Adm. Richard Byrd to the Antarctic in 1946...Now he divides his time between Manhattan Beach, where he keeps a suite in his posh Pen and Quill hotel-restaurant, and Studio City, where he maintains a bachelor apartment."
