Married off at twenty-three to a friend of her father's, Alicia spent little time at home during the brief marriage, instead earned a transport pilot's license (only the tenth woman in the country to do so), hunted big game in Indochina and India; and began to write for her father's newspaper 'The Daily News.' Her second father-orchestrated marriage failed, but her last, to someone of her own choosing, Harry Guggenheim, resulted in the founding of 'Newsday 'in 1940. As she guided the paper through investigative exposes and international and liberal political coverage, her influence on the national stage grew along with the newspaper's reputation and circulation: winning a Pulitzer in 1954 and putting her on the cover of 'Time.'
