Irving Tat' Spiegel, NY Times Symbol
at National Jewish Conferences, Dies

I

For more than three dec-
ades it was inconceivable
that a Jewish national gath-
ering should be held in this
country without the pres-
ence of Irving Spiegel, who
became popular as "Pat"
on the New York Times
staff.

LEONA ALTER, 68, died
April 2. She leaves a son,
Shelley; a brother; Morton
Lewis; a sister, Mrs. Sid-
ney (Adeline) Tauber; and
one granddaughter.

IRVING "PAT" SPIEGEL

He even covered world
Jewish conferences, in Is-
rael and elsewhere, when-
ever there was general Jew-
ish interest in the move-
ment. He covered the Coun-
cil of Federations General
Assemblies, Zionist Organi-
zation, Hadassah and Hista-
drut events, and the reli-
gious functions were de-
fined by him with journalis-
tic skill.
