Pulitzer Prize Winning New Yorker Halberstam Killed In Cali Car Wreck

Famed author and sportswriter David Halberstam was killed in a car crash in Menlo Park, south of San Francisco, authorities there say. He had just turned 73.

Halberstam was in the Bay Area doing what he has done for awhile now: speaking to journalism students. One, a student at U.C. Berkeley, was driving the car but survived.

Some early memorials, as well as a link to a Columbia J-School graduation speech he gave in 2005:
