Managing Editor of The Times-Tribune Lawrence K. Beaupre Dies at 68

By: Borys Krawczeniuk and Chris Kelly | Times-Tribune

Larry Beaupre’s career in journalism began in upstate New York, where as a young reporter he was part of the team that produced the Rochester Times-Union‘s Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of the Attica prison riots of 1971. It ended in Scranton, where as managing editor of The Times-­Tribune, he led the newspaper to dozens of state and national awards and oversaw the transformation of Times-Shamrock newspapers into the largest news-gathering team in Northeast Pennsylvania.

In the more than four decades in between, Mr. Beaupre built a reputation as a hard-nosed newspaperman who saw opportunities where others saw only obstacles, once even using a carrier pigeon to get photographs to the newsroom on deadline.

A husband, father, friend, mentor and leader, Mr. Beaupre touched the lives and guided the careers of countless journalists who mourned his death Sunday at the age of 68.
