Ed Heminger, board chairman for the Findlay Publishing Co. in Ohio and a former member of The Associated Press board of directors, died unexpectedly Wednesday at his home near Findlay, The Courier newspaper said. He was 85.
He was in the third of five generations to work at the local newspaper, rising from a paperboy in the 1940s to the top jobs in the company during a long career that also included positions at several industry associations and foundations.
Edwin L. Heminger grew up around the business. After joining the Navy, he received a bachelor's degree from Ohio Wesleyan University and a master's degree in journalism from Northwestern University in 1952.
That year, he returned to the newspaper as assistant business manager and married his wife, Barbara, who died in 2006.
He is survived by three children, two daughters-in-law and seven grandchildren.
