Perry White was the managing editor of the Daily Planet.

As a young man, Perry served on the United States Army as Colonel Perry White during the Korean War.[2]

Perry's first professional experience as a reporter was while working for the Gotham Gazette.[3] For this reason, Perry would allow some of his top reporters, such as Clark Kent and Lois Lane to work over at the Gazette on several occasions.[4]

Perry won his first Pulitzer Prize for the interview through which Superboy revealed that he was from Krypton.[5] He won his second Pulitzer Prize by convincing Superboy to reveal that he'd moved to Metropolis.[6] Perry's third Pulitzer Prize was for getting the exclusive story on the rogue government scientist Calixto and his Army of Tomorrow, having briefly covered it on WGBS-TV before publishing the full story in the Planet.[7][8]
