Henry Joseph "Harry" Haskell (1874–1952) was the editor of the Kansas City Star from 1928 to 1952. He was a two-time Pulitzer Prizewinner (1934, 1944) for his editorials in that paper. Born in Ohio, Haskell grew up in Bulgaria, where his parents established one of the region's first Protestant evangelic missions. Haskell had planned to follow in his parents' and older siblings' missionary footsteps, but four years at Oberlin College convinced him his true calling was in writing. His son and his grandson, both named Harry, followed the same calling and wrote for the Kansas City Star as well.
