Hugh Sidey (1950) covered the White House for Time magazine for almost half a century. A fourth-generation journalist, Sidey covered American Presidents Eisenhower through Clinton. He was with John F. Kennedy in Dallas and with Richard Nixon during his historic visit to China. After retirement, Sidey remained close to Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, and continued to work for Time. He wrote several books about individual presidents, and co-wrote a history of the office.
