John Hohenberg

94, Died Aug. 6

FORMER EDITOR, JOURNALISM PROFESSOR, AND PULITZER PRIZE OFFICIAL

Ahumble newspaperman whose career as a reporter, teacher, author, and speaker took him around the world, Hohenberg died Aug. 6.

A New York native, Hohenberg landed his first newspaper job in Seattle. He later had a long and successful career at New York papers as a reporter, editor, and correspondent. But it was teaching journalism that gave Hohenberg a wider audience. In 1948, he joined the faculty of his alma mater, Columbia University, where he taught in the graduate journalism program for 26 years. He was secretary of the advisory board and administrator of the Pulitzer Prizes from 1954 to 1976. Hohenberg, author of 22 books, received a Pulitzer Prize special award for his service to journalism in 1976. "From you," the citation underscored, "they learned to respect the language."
