Charlie Morse, 91


Former Courant political writer and columnist Charles F.J. Morse has died at 91. Chris Keating writes a nice piece on Charlie in the Hartford Courant, calling him  “A leading voice in Connecticut journalism during the golden age of newspapers.”

Former TV broadcaster Pat Sheehan remembers Charlie as a “savvy, quick-witted, and well connected reporter…and a delightful curmudgeon, when appropriate.  Charlie provided my introduction into ‘The Laurel Club’ when I arrived at the Capitol during the Dempsey/Meskill years.  He worked alongside the Courant’s legendary Jack Zaiman, and competed with the wonderful team from the Times, including Bob Conrad.”
