Times war correspondent Tom Treanor is injured in a Jeep accident while covering the liberation of France and dies of his injuries the next day. As I noted in a 2007 post, a journalism scholarship was established in his name at UCLA, but it apparently hasn’t been awarded since 1961.
His final story is here.
