Tad Szulc

Tadeusz Witold Szulc (July 25, 1926 – May 21, 2001) was a writer of non-fiction books.

Szulc was born in Warsaw, the son of Seweryn and Janina Baruch Szulc. He emigrated to join his family (who had left Poland in the mid-1930s) in Brazil in 1941, and came to New York City in 1949.

Szulc was a foreign and Washington correspondent of "The New York Times" from 1953 to 1972.

On April 6, 1961, nine days before the CIA supported Bay of Pigs invasion in Cuba, Szulc wrote a "New York Times" article stating that an invasion of Cuba was "imminent." President Kennedy became aware of the article, then the president personally telephoned the New York Times's publisher about it. The Times yielded to the President's demand that the story be reduced in prominence and detail.

Married for 52 years, he had a son and a daughter. He died of liver and lung cancer.

He was a Knight of the French Order of Honor.
