Harvey Shapiro, an admired American poet who chose newspaper work over the time-honored academic vocation of his peers, and who as an editor at The New York Times made an epochal assignment — what became the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter From Birmingham Jail” — that ultimately never appeared in the newspaper, died on Monday in Manhattan. He was 88.
