Anthony Day

Anthony Day (May 12, 1933 – September 2, 2007) was an American journalist, former editorial page editor for the Los Angeles Times, and editor of Henry Kissinger's work for over 25 years.[1]

Early life

Anthony Day was born in Miami, Florida, on May 12, 1933.[1] His father, Price Day, worked as a foreign correspondent for the Baltimore Sun, earning a Pulitzer Prize in 1949, and was later editor-in-chief of the newspaper.[1] Anthony Day had three younger brothers, all of whom also became journalists.[1]

Day graduated from Harvard University in 1955. He served two years in the U.S. Army following graduation.[1]


Day's career in journalism began at the Philadelphia Bulletin. He began working at the paper in 1957. He was eventually promoted to the paper's Washington D.C. bureau chief.[1]

Day was hired by the Los Angeles Times as the chief editorial writer in 1969. He eventually rose to become the editorial page editor, a position he held from 1971 until 1989, when he relinquished his editorial responsibilities but continued with the Times as a correspondent until he retired in the mif-1990s.[2] Day continued to work part-time for the Times as a contributor to the book review section after his official retirement. He also continued to edit a regular column by former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.[1]

On the day after Day's death, Kissinger said of him, "Although he was a constant critic of the policies of the administrations in which I served, I always considered him a critic of exemplary fairness, ability and honesty."[2]


Day died of emphysema on September 2, 2007, at St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He was survived by his wife, Lynn, and son, John.[1]
