David Halberstam Killed in Auto Accident

A consummate professional. He followed his heart, and got the facts straight.

Mark Lennihan/Associated Press, 1993

He died doing what he loved to do: - from the Obituary in The NYT;

"He was on his way to interview Y. A. Tittle, the former New York Giants quarterback, for a book about the 1958 championship game between the Giants and the Baltimore Colts, considered by many to be the greatest football game ever played."

In sports, economics and war reporting - with his small town narrative style; David Halberstam was a shinning example of what a reporter and writer should strive for.
