Murray J. Gart, 79, Last Editor Of The Washington Star - March 31, 2004

Mr. Gart became editor of the Star in 1978, shortly after his employer, Time Inc., bought it for $20 million and vowed to spend millions of dollars to pull it out of the financial difficulties that it had been suffering for a decade.

Before taking over the newspaper, Mr. Gart managed Time's foreign and domestic correspondents for nearly 10 years. His work in that job included the Watergate scandal and the withdrawal of American forces from Vietnam.
