Streetsblog New York City » In Memoriam: Ted Kheel, [Free] Transit Advocate and Visionary

Streetsblog New York City » In Memoriam: Ted Kheel, Transit Advocate and Visionary: "The New York Times called Ted Kheel, who died Friday at the age of 96, New York City’s pre-eminent labor peacemaker from the 1950s through the 1980s. And he was. Ted was also a steadfast advocate for civil rights, a fierce champion of mass transit, a stalwart defender of labor, an urbanist, a philanthropist, and a visionary. And, for the better part of a century, a vital element of progressive struggle in New York and beyond."
