New York, November 8
Seymour Topping, among the most accomplished foreign correspondents of his generation for The Associated Press and the New York Times and later a top editor at the Times and administrator of the Pulitzer Prizes, died on Sunday. He was 99.
Topping passed away “peacefully” at White Plains Hospital, his daughter Rebecca said in a statement. Working as a correspondent in 1949, he was eyewitness to the fall of Nanking. — Agencies
