INEXHAUSTIBLE CARING for his beloved Montclair, NJ. community, tireless devotion to the content of his local newspaper publications, along with boundless enthusiasm, for living were among the qualities possessed by Don Mulford, who died June 3, 1990.

For over 50 years he was in newspaper work and was the former editor and publisher of the Montclair TIMES and the VeronaCedar Grove TIMES. In his eulogy at Don's memorial service, classmate Dallas Townsend saluted him as "one of the best newsman I have ever met in any field of journalism." National political events and conventions were Don's personal reporting interest. Don was known as "Mr. Montclair," and was admired for his civic accomplishments.

Don prepared at Montclair Academy and St. Paul's School. At Princeton, he was circulation manager of the PRINCETONIAN, roomed with Wally Irwin, was a member of Key and Seal, and took part in lightweight crew, and graduated with highest honors.
