Jack Balch was a drama critic for the St. Louis Post Dispatch before coming to New York to direct at WPIX in the early days of television. His critically-acclaimed book, Lamps at High Noon, is the only novel to deal with the strike at the Federal Writers' Project in 1936 where he was employed. Jack Balch began painting in 1960 and continued for the rest of his life.
(Lamps at High Noon) Message: The Federal Arts Projects were created by FDR in the summer of 1935. A year later, a handful of writers employed in the St. Louis office of the Missouri Writers' Project, including Jack Balch, went out on strike. Lamps at High Noon is the only novel about this strike and the only one to treat comprehensively any aspect of the Federal Writers' Project.
