Moulds, former Chicago biz reporter, dies at 85
Warren Moulds, a business reporter for Chicago papers in the 196os and 1970s, died in December at the age of 85.
Bob Goldsborough of the Chicago Tribune writes, “In the late 1960s, Moulds was hired as a business reporter for the Chicago’s American newspaper, which was owned by the Tribune. He remained with the paper after it was renamed Chicago Today in 1969.
“‘I remember him as a gentle soul,’ said retired WTTW-Ch. 11 producer Len Aronson, who in the 1960s and 1970s worked as a reporter alongside Moulds at Chicago’s American and then at Chicago Today. ‘He was a journalistic pro with a healthy curiosity, a clean and balanced writing style, a great sense of humor and a more than normal capacity for forgiveness.’
“Moulds left Chicago Today when the Tribune shuttered the paper in September 1974. The following month, he became the director of media relations for the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and its International Monetary Market.”
