Jean R. Paulson, who often printed under the name "Jean Rimrock Paulson" depsite the fact that his middle inital stood for "Robison," was a veteran of the journalism field.

He served as Journalism Department Chair from Fall 1960 to February 1962, during which time he expressed his vision of BYU becoming a Communications Center for the west. He felt that BYU's program had a substantial lead over those of University of Utah and Utah State University and thus urged the department to gain accreditation.

After leaving the university, Paulson wrote columns for newspapers in Utah and California and eventually began editing the McClatchy group newspapers throughout California. He also was a crusader for mass transit in the Bay Area (Pratte, 23).
