Bob Simon, at 73 years of age, died as the result of a collision, in New York City. He was a passenger in the car.
An anchorman for 60 Minutes, Bob joined CBS as a correspondent in 1967. From the Bronx, he graduated from Brandeis University as a history major and worked in the foreign service before joining CBS.
It is obvious that Bob witnessed the passing of crucial events in our world, and worked faithfully to bring the truth to all people. An admirable journalist, chronicler of life, Bob will be missed.
There is no solitude like that of the heart when it looks round and sees in the vast concourse of human being, not one to whom it can put forth its sorrows or receive the answering sigh of sympathy.
Elizabeth Y Garrett New Lisbon Feb. 8th 1829
