A.M. Rosenthal (1922-2006)

The New York Times is reporting that former editor A.M. Rosenthal has died. (Times article; registration required)

I don't have much to add to his obituary, which reads in some ways like a history of the 20th century. This was the editor who created the New York Times that, frankly, I grew to love. I tend to think he did his best to make the Times a world-class paper and one that would also be appealing.

Rosenthal attended DeWitt Clinton High School around the same time as my Dad, so it's possible they knew each other, but I'm honestly not sure. However, given that they were both newspapermen, I'm sure they must have met at some point.

2006.

Re: Correction: For the Record

Corrected.

I'm shaking my head at my mistake. It's already May! (At least all my checks had the correct year on them since January.)
