This research study is about the lives of editors-in-chief of Austrian daily newspapers after 1945 zooming in on socialeconomic factors. The analysis is based on Pierre Bourdieu's three capital sources - economic, cultural, and social capital. Patterns with regard to the dominance of these capital sources in the lives of editors-in-chief can be observed and lead to the distinction into four different cohorts. Besides, four different ahistorical ideal types of curriculum vitae can be identified that show in each case a different dominance of the capital sources. In these ideal types every editor-in-chief of the research is included. Women take a special position in the field of journalism by having to develop their capital resources more strongly.
