You will notice a change in the format of our obituaries. Our obituary program, dedicated to honoring the lives and legacies of those who shaped the New England newspaper industry is experiencing some technical difficulties. We are working on addressing these to ensure it continues to serve as a valuable resource for the community. The program should be back up and running next month, providing a platform to celebrate the contributions of these remarkable individuals.

In the meantime, if you have any information about a recently deceased journalist, photographer, editor, publisher, or anyone who worked in the New England newspaper industry, please let us know so that we can tell their friends and colleagues. Send any information or links to
