OK, SO maybe we're biased, but one of our favorite book genres is the journalist's autobiography.Imagine our delight, then, at opening the April issue of the College Park-based American Journalism Review and happening on a piece in which college professors John Maxwell Hamilton of Louisiana State University and Judith Paterson of the University of Maryland at College Park rate what they consider the 10 best autobiographies by newspaper types.In all, it's an impressive list. We might have substituted one or two others, such as William Shirer's "Nightmare Years," but we really have no complaints about the titles the two profs came up with.

AMERICAN CASSANDRA: The Life of Dorothy Thompson. By Peter Kurth. Little Brown & Co. 584 pages with notes, index and photographs. $19.95; $12.95 in paperback. FOLLOWING the career of this redoubtable woman journalist and prophet takes us rampaging through the major historical events of the first half of this century, rousing vivid memories of the 1930s, '40s and '50s among those who recall the period and painting equally vivid scenes for those born later.Dorothy Thompson, whose columns ran for two decades in the New York Herald Tribune and other publications, wrote pungently on topical matters and vehemently against Hitlerism and communism.

MY LIFE AS AUTHOR AND EDITOR. By H. L. Mencken. Edited by Jonathan Yardley. Knopf. 450 pages. $30.WELL, well, well. What have we here? Another racist, antisemitic broadside on the order of Henry Louis Mencken's explosive 1989 diary? Or perhaps a carefully edited (and excised) account of Mencken's reign as editor (with George Jean Nathan) of the zTC Smart Set (1914-1923) and later as founder and editor (again with Nathan) of the American Mercury (1924-1933)?A lot of both, as it turns out, although, happily, the editing by Jonathan Yardley, a columnist and book reviewer for the Washington Post, is well-done.

Dorothy Holden Thompson, a senior partner in an Easton law firm and trailblazer for other women lawyers, died Wednesday, apparently of heart failure, while visiting her daughter and son-in-law in Cary, N.C. The Easton resident was 84. Dorothy Holden was born in Baltimore, the daughter of a greenhouse owner who, with no more than a fifth-grade education himself, wanted his five children to go as far in school as possible. She attended the Johns Hopkins University for three years after graduating from Eastern High School, and later entered the University of Maryland School of Law, one of the few law schools admitting women at the time.
