2020-08-06 12:06   美国新闻网   - 

记者兼作家皮特·哈米尔花了40多年时间报道纽约市周三,他因跌倒住院后死亡。他85岁了。

哈米尔以记者、专栏作家和编辑的身份登上了纽约小报,报道了从罗伯特·F·肯尼迪遇刺到9月11日恐怖袭击的历史时刻。资深记者和领导人全天都表达了他们的哀悼。

《每日野兽》专栏作家丹尼斯·哈米尔的弟弟说:“皮特的确是个好人,告诉纽约美国广播公司WABC台。

皮特·哈米尔1935年出生于布鲁克林的公园坡,父母是爱尔兰移民。作为七个孩子中最大的一个,他高中辍学,在去艺术学校之前在布鲁克林海军造船厂工作。

1957年结束在美国海军的服役后,哈米尔在当地一家希腊报纸担任艺术总监,并经常给《纽约邮报》写信。哈米尔的信件引起了该报编辑吉米·韦克斯勒的注意,他邀请这位25岁的年轻人参加一个会议。

“我们谈话时,他抽着烟,呷着咖啡。在我们谈话快结束时,他靠在椅子上,双手放在脑后。“你想过成为一名记者吗,””哈米尔在回忆录中写道。

哈米尔于1960年加入《纽约邮报》,报道了从地方犯罪到国家政治的各种故事。在接下来的三十年里,他在几家纽约报纸工作,包括《每日新闻》、《纽约先驱论坛报》、《乡村之声》和《纽约新闻日报》。

纽约新闻俱乐部,一个为纽约记者服务的非营利协会,在一份声明中说纽约人热切地阅读哈米尔的文章,这影响了他们的一生。

“作为一名专栏作家,皮特是少数几个随着事件的发展和日报的发表而被公众高度期待的人之一。该组织在一份声明中说:“政府官员也在等待他接受一个新闻报道,有时是为了制定政策。”

《纽约时报》专栏作家吉姆·德怀尔推特哈米尔的话对70年代纽约问题的扩大起到了关键作用,“就像卡萨布兰卡的爱国者用《马赛曲》淹没了纳粹一样。”

“他那颗慷慨的善良的心永远不会消沉。谢谢你所做的一切,”德怀尔在推特上写道。

也是在这段时间里,哈米尔与他的恶魔作战。在他的回忆录《饮酒生活》中,他公开了自己在20世纪60年代和70年代初的酗酒经历及其对人际关系和工作的影响。

哈米尔说他最后一次喝酒是在1972年的除夕。

他在1994年接受C-SPAN采访时说:“我认为,当你戒酒时,你能发现的一件事就是你有多少时间。”“你有时间读书。你有时间听音乐,不仅仅是在酒吧的点唱机上放音乐作为背景,而是去听音乐。”

1993年,他被聘为《纽约邮报》的总编辑,然而,编辑人员和所有者亚伯·希施菲尔德之间的公开争执导致他在一个月后离职。1997年,他被聘为《每日新闻》的编辑,但八个月后他辞职了。

在随后的几年里,哈米尔继续为《每日新闻》撰写专栏,其中包括一篇发表于2001年9月12日这反映了世贸中心的毁灭。

除了他的新闻工作,哈米尔还写了几本非小说和小说,包括“八月雪”,“永远”,“为什么辛纳屈的重要性”和“市中心:我的曼哈顿。”尽管这些作品的主题和风格各不相同,但许多作品都有着相似的背景:纽约。

哈米尔的职业生涯出现在一部HBO纪录片中“截止日期艺术家”和纽约专栏作家吉米·布莱斯林一起。

州长安德鲁·科莫在一份声明中称哈米尔是典型的纽约人。

“我从他身上学到了很多,他激励了我。”皮特的死将在纽约人心中留下一个洞。”

哈米尔的第一次婚姻——与雷蒙娜·尼葛伦的婚姻——于1970年以离婚告终,他保留了两个女儿埃德里安娜和迪尔德丽的主要监护权。1986年,哈米尔嫁给了日本记者青木富基科,他在日本巡回宣传他的短篇小说集《东京素描》时遇到了青木富基科

汉密尔的两个女儿青木、一个孙子和四个兄弟姐妹幸存了下来。
 

Pete Hamill, legendary New York City journalist and author, dead at 85

Journalist and author Pete Hamill, who spent over 40 years coveringNew York City, died Wednesday after he was hospitalized following a fall. He was 85.

Hamill worked his way up the New York tabloids as a reporter, columnist and editor, and covered historic moments from Robert F. Kennedy's assassination to the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11. Fellow veteran journalists and leaders expressed their condolences throughout the day.

"Pete was truly one of the good guys," younger brother Denis Hamill, a Daily Beast columnist,told New York ABC station WABC.

Pete Hamill was born in 1935 in Park Slope, Brooklyn, to Irish immigrants. The oldest of seven children, he dropped out of high school and worked in the Brooklyn Navy Yard before going to art school.

After a stint in the U.S. Navy ended in 1957, Hamill worked as an art director for a local Greek paper and frequently wrote letters to the New York Post. Hamill's correspondence attracted the attention of the paper's editor, Jimmy Wechsler, who invited the 25-year-old to a meeting.

"While we talked, he smoked cigarettes and sipped coffee. Near the end of our chat, he leaned back in his chair and put his hands behind his head. 'Have you ever thought about becoming a newspaperman?'" Hamill wrote in his memoir.

Hamill joined the New York Post in 1960 and covered a variety of stories from local crime to national politics. Over the next three decades, he worked at several New York papers, including the Daily News, New York Herald Tribune, the Village Voice and New York Newsday.

The New York Press Club, a nonprofit association for New York journalists,said in a statementthat New Yorkers eagerly read Hamill's articles and it had an impact on all of their lives.

"As a columnist, Pete was one of a select few whose opinions were highly anticipated by the public as events unfolded and daily newspapers were delivered. Government officials, too, awaited his take on a news story, sometimes in order to formulate policy," the group said in a statement.

New York Times columnist Jim Dwyertweetedthat Hamill's words were critical in amplifying New York issues during the '70s, "like the patriots in Casablanca drowning out the Nazis with La Marseillaise."

"The goodness of his generous heart never ran low. Thanks for all of it," Dwyer tweeted.

It was also during this time that Hamill battled his demons. In his memoir, "A Drinking Life," he opened up about his years of alcoholism during the 1960s and early '70s and its effect on his relationships and work.

Hamill said he had his last drink on New Year's Eve 1972.

"I think the one thing you find out when you stop drinking is just how much time you have," he said in a 1994 interview on C-SPAN. "You have time to read. You have time to listen to music, not just have music as background on a jukebox in a bar, but to listen to it."

In 1993, he was hired as the editor in chief of the New York Post in 1993, however, a public dispute between the editorial staff and owner Abe Hirschfeld led to him leaving a month later. In 1997, he was hired as the editor of the Daily News, but he resigned eight months later.

Hamill continued to write columns for the Daily News in the subsequent years, including onepublished Sept. 12, 2001that reflected on the World Trade Center's destruction.

In addition to his journalism work, Hamill also authored several nonfiction and fiction books, including "Snow in August," "Forever," "Why Sinatra Matters" and "Downtown: My Manhattan." While the topics and genres of those works were eclectic, many shared a similar backdrop: New York City.

Hamill's career was featured in an HBO documentary"Deadline Artists"along with fellow New York columnist Jimmy Breslin.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo called Hamill a quintessential New Yorker in a statement.

"I learned much from him and he inspired me. Pete's death is going to leave a hole in the heart of New Yorkers," he said in a statement.

Hamill's first marriage, to Ramona Negron, ended in divorce in 1970, and he retained primary custody of his two daughters, Adrienne and Deirdre. In 1986, Hamill married the Japanese journalist Fukiko Aoki, whom he met while touring Japan to promote his collection of short stories, "Tokyo Sketches."

Hamill is survived by Aoki, his two daughters, a grandson and four of his siblings.
