1963: Kim Yong-koo.
Kim Yong-koo, the first Nieman from South Korea and the former managing editor of The Korea Times, died August 19 in Seoul at the age of 90.
After working as an army chaplain and as an interpreter between Korean and U.S. forces during the Korean War, Kim began his journalism career as a reporter at The Korea Times and went on to serve as the paper's managing editor from 1959 to 1961. He then became director of the Press Center, an ethical journalism institute managed by The Korea Times.
After his Nieman fellowship year, he wrote for the Hankook Ilbo--a sister paper of The Korea Times--starting in 1963. In 1998, he became a distinguished professor of journalism at Korea University.
