Legendary Reuters journalist Arthur Spiegelman dies

One of Reuters’ longest-serving correspondents, Arthur Spiegelman, died at his Los Angeles home at the weekend, aged 68.

Spiegelman, a former LA bureau chief and New York senior correspondent, spent 42 years at the global news agency covering stories including US presidential campaigns, the murder of John Lennon, the first Gulf War and the OJ Simpson murder trial.

Reuters editor-in-chief David Schlesinger said: “Art’s writing was beloved of readers and editors alike, using a light touch to explore subjects from pop culture to politics and an ability to find a laugh or wry angle anywhere. He was a friend and mentor to legions of journalists.”
