Deaths in the family

Posted By on Sun, Jul 26, 2009 at 8:16 AM

Publisher Alan Leveritt asked that I pass along sad news concerning former members of our publishing family. The sons of former Little Rock residents Linton and Jan Taylor Weeks -- Stone, 24, and Holt, 20 -- were killed Thursday night on Interstate 81 in Virginia when their car was struck by a truck that failed to stop in time for a traffic backup. They were en route to Washington to see their parents and attend a book party for historian Douglas Brinkley, for whom Stone Weeks had worked as a researcher.

Linton Weeks was the founding editor of the late Southern Magazine, published in Little Rock from 1986 to 1989, when it was bought by Time-Warner then folded. He's now a national correspondent for NPR.
