Talk of the Town: Arkansan's death

Posted By on Tue, Feb 1, 2011 at 10:20 AM

Ernie Dumas calls attention to the passing of Pat Crow, a Little Rock native who rose from the copy editing desk at the Arkansas Gazette to become an editor at The New Yorker. John McPhee pays tribute to Crow in a Talk of the Town item in this week's New Yorker., but it is not currently available on the magazine website. (Thanks to Atlas for directing me to a way to link the article.)

Crow grew up in Little Rock, graduated from Central High and the University of Missouri and joined the Gazette as a copy editor in about 1960. He went to work at the New York Times in 1962, just in time for the 114-day newspaper strike. He was an assistant city editor at the New York Herald Tribune before he joined The New Yorker.
