Don Bauder, a business journalist for BusinessWeek and the San Diego Union-Tribune for decades, died Friday at the age of 88.

A story in the Times of San Diego states, “His first job was with Illinois Bell Telephone, but he soon moved to the Chicago Bureau of Business Week magazine, and two years later became its Cleveland Bureau Chief. He served in this position for seven years and covered all the major industries and businesses in Ohio.

“The year 1973 brought a new position as financial editor and columnist for the San Diego Union. When the  newspaper became the San Diego Union-Tribune, Bauder became a senior columnist for the combined papers, for a total of 30 years with the newspaper.

“Based on his reporting on the J. David scandal, he wrote Captain Money and the Golden Girl, which landed on the Los Angeles Times best-seller book list for over two months. He was  often on local television and radio shows, and a visiting scholar at the journalism schools of the University  of Wisconsin and the University of Missouri.”
