Jack Doughty, who held a series of top newsroom jobs at the SF Examiner in the 1960s and moved on to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in the 1970s, has died at age 91. The Seattle Times obit said of Doughty: “… he was a character straight out of the classic 1920s play “The Front Page” — hard-working, hard-drinking, crusty, competitive, eternally curious and ready to take risks.” [Seattle Times obit] [SF Chron obit]
