Anthony Mazzola, Veteran Hearst Editor, Dead at 90

Anthony Mazzola, who dedicated more than 40 years of his life to editing and reshaping Town & Country and Harper’s Bazaar, has died. He was 90 years old.

Mazzola joined Hearst in 1948 as an art director for Town & Country. He would hold that role for almost two decades before eventually becoming editor-in-chief in 1965. In 1972, Mazzola was appointed editor of Harper’s Bazaar. Mazzola was also the fine arts curator for Hearst.

“Anthony Mazzola was a dynamic member of the Hearst Magazines family for more than 65 years,” said Steven Swartz, Hearst’s president and CEO, in a statement. “Tony will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of working with him.”

Mazzola is survived by his three children and his wife, Michele Morgan Mazzola, who also worked with Anthony at Hearst for over 45 years. Mazzola is also survived by five grandchildren.
