William Thomas has died. As the editor of the LA Times from 1971 to 1989, he helped realize the paper’s ambition to be a nationally recognized news organization. The Times scored 9 Pulitzer Prizes under his leadership, launched its Sunday magazine, Book Review, and Business and Calendar sections -- and opened 11 new domestic and foreign bureaus.
Goodbye, Bill Thomas
