Ukraïns’ke zhyttia (Chicago)
Ukraïns’ke zhyttia (Chicago) (Ukrainian Life). A newspaper published weekly and then semimonthly and monthly in 1955–85 in Chicago. It was nonpartisan; it frequently criticized mainstream émigré organizations and promoted democratic ideals. It was generally less critical of Soviet Ukraine than other émigré papers and devoted considerable attention to cultural and political developments there. The paper was edited by a board headed for many years by Toma Lapychak, who was also the main force behind the publication. Other editors and contributors included Myroslav Semchyshyn, Yu. Stepovy, Teodor Kurpita, I. Yaremko, and Andrii Bilynsky, whose articles stressed the need for a rapprochement with Soviet Ukraine.
