A Chicago newsman died

Let us now praise . . . 

. . . Jack Fuller, who at the age of 69 slipped away from cancer this week at Chicago,[whose death]  takes from us one of America’s greatest newspapermen.

He rose from copyboy to become editor, publisher, and president of the Tribune Company.

He’d answered a draft call during Vietnam and, later, served as an aide to one of America’s greatest attorneys general at a dangerous hour for our republic.

He wrote two classic books on news values just when newspaperdom appeared to be abandoning them.

The rest is here: Jack Fuller – The New York Sun
