Donald Sorenson, a former business reporter and editor at the Kansas City Star and The Oregonian, died last month from complications related to Parkinson’s disease. He was 87.
Sorenson joined the Oregonian in 1970 after 24 years at the Star. He held numerous business reporting and editing positions at the paper until his retirement in 1990. At the Star, he was also a business reporter.
At the Oregonian, Sorenson covered financial news and other topics, including a seven-part series in 1981 on the Washington Public Power Supply System debacle to build five nuclear power plants in the Northwest.
