Michael Parks: He Won a Pulitzer Prize for His Reporting and Led the Los Angeles Times

From a Los Angeles Times story by Michael Finnegan headlined “Michael Parks, former Los Angeles Times editor and foreign correspondent, dies”:

Michael Parks, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting on the struggle to end apartheid in South Africa and later led the Los Angeles Times during a tumultuous period that ended when the Chandler family sold the newspaper after a century of control, died on Saturday.

In his 25 years as a foreign correspondent, first for the Baltimore Sun and then for The Los Angeles  Times, Parks covered some of the most momentous events in modern history, including the Vietnam War and the collapse of the Soviet Union.
