Harold Evans was one of the greatest newspaper editors of the 20th century. He pushed British journalism into investigative areas that were never before covered. He took on corporate crime and brushed aside censorship and self-censorship in the business and profession of journalism. As an author-historian, he had inexhaustible energy and unique angles of insight observation and priorities. He was very accessible to those he mentored and always willing to help. No matter his age and experience, his curiosity was impervious to being jaded. His horizons will be sorely missed. Our sympathies are with his family.
