Kempton, Murray

Kempton, Murray
▪ 1998

      American journalist whose columns championing the underdog—and featuring ultracomplex sentences—in such publications as the New York Post and Newsday made him a literary presence for some five decades and whose bicycle made him a familiar figure on Manhattan streets; he won the Pulitzer Prize in 1985 (b. Dec. 16, 1917—d. May 5, 1997).
