Smith, Red


Smith, Red
orig. Walter Wellesley Smith

(25 sep. 1905, Green Bay, Wis., EE.UU.–15 ene. 1982, Stamford, Conn.).

Columnista deportivo estadounidense. Smith trabajó para varios periódicos antes de que su columna "Views of Sport [Perspectivas deportivas] apareciera en el New York Herald Tribune en 1945. A partir de entonces, esta empezó a figurar en varios periódicos. En 1971 se integró a The New York Times. En sus columnas, enfocadas sobre todo en deportes de alta convocatoria, evitaba el uso de la jerga deportiva y hacía gala de su oficio literario, humor irónico y profundos conocimientos. Obtuvo el Premio Pulitzer en 1976. Sus columnas fueron recogidas en cinco volúmenes, entre los que se destacan Out of the Red [Primicias de Red] (1950) y Strawberries in the Wintertime [Fresas en invierno] (1974).
