United States Army General, Journalist. The nephew of "New York Times" Adolph Ochs, was mentored by his uncle, and attended Princeton University. He served in the United States Army during World War I as a Major and battalion commander in the 306th Infantry Regiment, 77th Infantry Division. He fought on the Western Front in France, where he was one of many soldiers to be victimized by German mustard gas, and was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for his bravery at St. Juvin on October 14, 1918. Entering the Army Reserve after the war, he followed in his family's newspaper business, and became the president and publisher of the "Chattanooga Times" in 1935. After the start of World War II he was called into active duty, and commanded the Division responsible for the defense of Hawaii from 1941 until he retired again from active duty in 1944, after which he became General Manager of the "New York Times", a position he held until his death. In 1945, after the liberation of Nazi concentration camps in Germany, he was of eighteen newspaper executives invited by General Dwight D. Eisenhower to visit and tour the facilities, and he wrote a series of articles in the "Times" detailing his experiences and feelings (which were made all the more poignant because he himself was Jewish). Appointed as Major General in the Army Reserve, his Medal include the Silver Star with Oak Leaf Clusters, the Purple Heart, the French Legion of Honor and the Croix de Guerre with Palms in addition to his DSC. (bio by: Ugaalltheway)
