Cohen Departs Conservatively

This comment from Laurence Cohen is making the rounds:

…after 16 years, my regular Courant column-writing days are over. Still doing columns for Hart. Business Journal, Waterbury R-A, and Banker & Tradesman, in Boston.

Larry has been writing for The Courant in some capacity or another for a long, long time; and of course everyone’s tenure must end sometime. It just seems like most of the recent endings are for the wrong reasons.

Larry Cohen, conservative dresser

Anyway, Larry, please forgive the resurrection of this photo from the collection of Henry McNulty. It was taken, I’m guessing, in the 70s, when the Courant was at the beginning of a long upward climb in popularity, influence and profitability.

    PS And the late, great Courant sportswriter Frank Keyes knew how to pick’em when he spotted “Kid Vestibule” as an up-and-comer!

    The late Courant sportswriter Frank Keyes knew how to pick ‘em when he dubbed Kid Vestibule at the beginning as an up-and-comer.

    With fond memories and all best for the future,

    Yes, this picture was taken in the early afternoon of September 16, 1977, in what then was the Life/style Department.
