|Tom Welsh and Harry Butler at City University|
Tom is best known to most journalists as co-editor of Essential Law for Journalists and was a champion of press freedom. He was also a great champion of his students and was a mentor and friend to us throughout our careers. We will miss him very much.
- Eric Gordon, editor of the Camden New Journal, who worked for Tom as a news editor, has written an obit in the CNJ which you can read here. He describes Tom as "a fine liberal journalist of the old school with a guiding steely conviction that newspapers must always be prepared to hold authority to account."
