Waldo Proffitt, Longtime Herald-Tribune Editor, Dies at 92

Waldo Proffitt – for many years an editor, columnist, and gentle advocate for rational progress and environmental sustainability at the Sarasota Herald-Tribune – passed away today at the Pines of Sarasota nursing home at the age of 92.

In a newspaper career that spanned the Civil Rights era and Florida’s ongoing political struggle over population growth, he took on perpetrators of injustice and greed with arguments that were mild-mannered in tone but never unclear about where his sympathies lay.
