    FACTS/TIDBITS
    • Marianne Strong, a former journalist, society editor and daily columnist for the New York World Telegram and Sun, has also written for a plethora of magazines such as Town and Country; Quest; Editor and Publisher; the Palm Beach Daily News; and Ladies Home Journal. Having graduated from the Columbia School of Journalism and working as a journalist for many years, she started the agency in 1978 with her first client, John H. Davis, the first cousin of the late Jacqueline Onassis, with whom she published a major biography The Guggenheims: An American Epic. Davis also wrote several books on the Kennedys including Mafia Kingfish: Carlos Marcello and the Assassination of John F. Kennedy, considered by experts one of the most authoritative on the assassination. The early success of the agency vaulted Marianne into the world of agenting, a world in which she has achieved success both for herself and for the many agents who have trained under her.
