The New York Press Club mourns the death of Capt. William Farrell, USN (Ret). In addition to his honorable service to our country, Bill, for many years, provided pro bono legal assistance to the Press Club on First Amendment issues. He was a good friend to our organization, and a champion of a free press.

Bill passed away on Wednesday, November 30th. The Press Club has extended personal condolences to Bill's family.

Thank you to all who attended the 24th annual New York Press Club Foundation Conference on Journalism at NYU! We hope you enjoyed the conference.
