Biz journalist Moskowitz dies at 91
Milton Moskowitz, a business journalist and author best known for co-writing the popular “100 Best Companies to Work For” lists, died Thursday at the age of 91.
Sophie Kunthara of the San Francisco Chronicle writes, “His career in journalism started in 1951, when he was hired as a copy boy at the Chicago Sun. He went on to work as a staff reporter for the Hearst wire service, International News Service, as well as Reuters and Advertising Age in London and New York.
“He began writing the column ‘The Money Tree’ for The San Francisco Chronicle three times a week starting in 1968. It was later syndicated to more than 30 newspapers across America.
“‘Milt was a passionate and fierce advocate for the idea that businesses should treat their employees well and they should be accountable to society,’ said his stepson Blaine Townsend. ‘And he was relentless in his sort of pursuit of information on those kind of best practices. He wanted to disseminate them and talk about them and have them fully realized in the public debate.'”
