Original name: Abraham Michael Rosenthal
Birth: May 2, 1922

Death: May 10, 2006

Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalist. He was Managing Editor of the New York Times from 1969 to 1977, and Executive Editor from 1977 to 1988. Abraham Michael Rosenthal was born in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, the son of Jewish immigrants who had come to Canada in the 1890s. His father, a fur trapper who had changed his surname from Shipiatsky to Rosenthal, later moved his family to New York City. There Rosenthal grew up in the Bronx, graduated from DeWitt Clinton High School, and went on to City College, where in 1943 he began his legendary 56-year career at The New York Times as a college correspondent. In 1960 he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting, and during his tenure as a Times editor, oversaw the paper's coverage of such events as the Vietnam War and the Watergate Scandal. Rosenthal's final decade with the paper was as an Op Ed columnist. From 1999 until 2004 he wrote a column for the New York Daily News. A noted humanitarian with a particular interest in India, he was working on a book about Mahatma Ghandi at the time of his death from complications following a stroke. He was interred in Westchester Hills Cemetery in accordance with his request to be buried "in the Bronx, near the Hudson River".  (bio by: Nikita Barlow)
