Remembering Betsy Wade

Betsy Wade in 1975 in The New York Times newsroom. When she landed at The Times in 1956, she broke a 105-year-old practice of male copy editing in the news department. Credit The New York Times

My friend, colleague, and mentor, Betsy Wade of The New York Times, died yesterday. She was an extraordinary editor and a groundbreaking journalist with a wry sense of humor. Betsy, who was a contributor to Everett Potter’s Travel Report, was tough but fair, a champion of younger writers, encouraging, critical (sometimes highly critical 🙂 and one of the most grounded people that I have ever known. She was old school in the best possible way. Her obituary in the NYT gives a sense of her amazing career. She will be missed.
