Cuyler, former Berkshire Eagle biz editor, dies
Lew C. Cuyler, the business editor of The Berkshire Eagle in Massachusetts from 1987 to 1995, died Nov. 3 at the age of 85.
Tony Dobrowolski of The Eagle writes, “In 1987, Cuyler was offered and accepted the position of The Eagle’s business editor. It was around the time The Eagle first first began publishing a Sunday edition, and went from being an evening to a morning paper.
“‘We were working on setting up a Sunday paper, and wanted to have a great business section,’ said Miller, whose family owned The Eagle before it was sold to Media News Group in 1995.
“‘It was really a subject that was not well emphasized at all,’ said Miller, referring to the Eagle’s business coverage at the time. “‘When we went to mornings, we were going up against the Springfield Union, and we wanted to have a business section daily. It was supposed to be something special, and Lew was part of it.'”
