Albert Hamilton Gordon, one of the last living links to the great stock market crash of 1929, passed away on Friday. He was 107.

In 2004, I produced a story about Mr. Gordon for Marketplace. Back then he was "only" 103 and still came into his office several days a week!

Incidentally, in its obituary, the New York Times appears to use two quotes from my story, but mistakenly attributes them to "NPR." Marketplace, of course, is produced by American Public Media.
