Arnold Eric Sevareid (November 26, 1912 – July 9, 1992) was an American author and CBS news journalist from 1939 to 1977. He was one of a group of elite war correspondents who were hired by CBS newsman Edward R. Murrow and nicknamed "Murrow's Boys." Sevareid was the first to report the Fall of Paris in 1940, when the city was captured by German forces during World War II.Traveling into Burma in the Pacific theater in 1943, his transport aircraft developed engine trouble, and he was rescued from behind enemy lines by a U.S. Army Air Forces search and rescue team that had been established for that purpose. In July 1965, he was the last journalist to interview Adlai Stevenson II (1900–1965) at the U.S. embassy in London just days prior to his death.Sevareid followed in Murrow's footsteps as a commentator on the CBS Evening News for thirteen years, for which he was recognized with Emmy and Peabody Awards.
