Background[edit] James Roscoe Drummond was born January 13, 1902, in Theresa, New York, to John Henry and Georgia Estella (Peppers) Drummond. In 1924, he received his degree in journalism from Syracuse University

Career[edit] On the same day he received his degree in 1924, Drummond joined the staff of The Christian Science Monitor.[1] He worked as a reporter, assistant city editor, assistant to executive editor and chief editorial writer between the years 1924 and 1930. He was European editorial manager (1930–33); general news editor and member of editorial board (1933–34); and executive editor (1934–40). In 1940 he was named chief of the bureau in Washington, D.C., a position he held until 1953. Drummond took a leave to serve as European director of information for the Marshall Plan (1949–1951) with the Economic Cooperation Administration in Paris.[1] A founding member of Freedom House in 1941,[2] he was a member of the board of trustees (1962–67) and served as its vice-chair.[1] From 1953 to 1955 he was chief of the Washington bureau of the New York Herald Tribune.[3]

Personal and death[edit] Drummond died of a heart ailment September 30, 1983.[3]

Legacy[edit] Drummond is best known for a political column he wrote for more than 50 years, called "State of the Nation". Syndicated by the Los Angeles Times, the column was carried by 150 newspapers in the U.S. and abroad, and reflected Drummond's Republican point of view.[3] He began writing the column in 1951, succeeding Joseph C. Harsch;[4] he stopped writing the column in 1981 after he was injured in an automobile accident.[3]

Works[edit] He was co-author (with Gaston Coblentz) of Duel at the Brink (1960), a book about Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. Drummond was writing his memoirs and a mystery novel at the time of his death at the New Jersey nursing home where he had lived since his car accident in 1981.[1]
