DeWitt Wallace was born Nov. 12, 1889, in St. Paul, Minnesota. He began an index of favorite magazine articles while he was a college student, and he developed the idea of Reader’s Digest, a pocket-sized digest of popular articles, while recuperating from World War I wounds. The Wallaces published Reader’s Digest themselves and had rapid success. DeWitt Wallace served as editor until 1965.
