Neil Morgan, a journalist and author, died Saturday at the age of 89. Morgan died at his La Jolla home after a long illness, according to the Los Angeles Times.
He wrote for the San Diego Daily Journal and later the San Diego Evening Tribune. And after being "forced out" of the merged Union-Tribune in 2004, Morgan reportedly helped investor Ralph B. Woolley Jr. found the Voice of San Diego website, according to the LA Times.
In addition, Morgan was co-author, along with wife Judith, of a biography of fellow La Jolla resident Ted Geisel—Dr. Seuss.
