Anthony Lewis Dies

Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Anthony Lewis died at 85 after a remarkable career fighting for free speech, human rights and constitutional law causes.

According to a New York Times obituary: “The cause was complications of renal and heart failure, said his wife, Margaret H. Marshall, a retired chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.

Mr. Lewis brought passionate engagement to his two great themes: justice and the role of the press in a democracy. His column, called “At Home Abroad” or “Abroad at Home” depending on where he was writing from, appeared on the Op-Ed page of The Times from 1969 to 2001. His voice was liberal, learned, conversational and direct.”
