NEW YORK — Harry Jenkins, former gray goods editor of DNR, WWD’s sister publication, died March 5 of a stroke at his home in Bear, Del. He was 88.
Jenkins’ byline appeared in DNR and sometimes other Fairchild publications for nearly 56 years. He joined the company as a textile reporter in 1945, after serving as a paratrooper in World War II in North Africa. He retired in 1979 but continued to write his gray goods column at least once a week until April 30, 2001.
