Fred Newman 1932 - 2008
Fred was one of the first to welcome me into the publishing world and had that journalist thirst to both understand the issues and the editorial skill to précis to the core. He understood the need for change and through his printed words in Publishing News, helped make it happen. The photo is from my wedding and even here, the journalist in him even spotted a funny story. The industry will miss his quiet influence and I his friendship.
