This tag is limited to individuals who wrote news-related pieces for magazines and newspapers, as opposed to those who wrote regular columns, theater reviews, and other types of prose. The sheer number of journalists represented by this tag marks the significance of this professional field to the Greenwich Village community of the 1920s. Many of the major writers who signed the door began their career as journalists. A significant number worked as foreign correspondents in the First World War. Some made a lifetime career out of journalism, while others used this work as a stepping-stone to more enduring forms of writing. However, the ephemerality of early twentieth-century journalism is being challenged by the internet, and today, articles by many of these writers may be rediscovered online.
