Former Washington Post opinion editor Robert H. Estabrook, who reported from more than 70 countries as a foreign correspondent, has died in Connecticut. He was 93.
Janet Manko, a longtime friend and publisher of the Lakeville Journal, says Estabrook died Tuesday at a nursing facility near his Salisbury home.
Estabrook graduated from Northwestern University and served in the Army during World War II. He worked at newspapers in Michigan and Iowa before joining The Washington Post, where he was an editorial writer, opinion editor and foreign correspondent.
He moved to Connecticut in 1971 and bought the Lakeville Journal, serving as publisher and editor for years. He was among a coalition of journalists who pushed lawmakers in 1975 to adopt Connecticut's open records laws.
Estabrook's wife and associate publisher, Mary Lou, died in 2010.
