Los Angeles, Dec. 24

Mike Malak has forwarded to us the following:

The L.A. Times reported today the death, at 95, of vet publicist Julian Myers. Julian wrote a number of Anni articles for the Daily Variety, was a well-regarded regular visitor to Tom and Pete Pryor and was as close to a staffer as I’d ever seen a publicist get. His wife, Patsy, an attorney, was famous for her pro-bono work. She died at 83 in October. I knew Julian was a runner and a health guru, but not that he marked his 90th birthday by running 90 miles, from San Diego to L.A. (By that criterion I’m barely two.) He was one of the Gentlemen Publicists and never a stranger to a smile.
