PortraitMike Royko was born in Chicago in 1932 and for much of his youth lived in the flat above his family's tavern on Milwaukee Avenue. Not only did he become the most widely read columnist in Chicago history, but his column was syndicated in more than 600 newspapers across the country. He was also the author of the classic account of city machine politics, "Boss." Mike Royko's last column in the "Chicago Tribune" appeared in March 1997, a month before his death. His memorial service was held on a sunny day in Wrigley Field.
