FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 1989

They stayed in South Africa a few years,
but due to the political climate there,
they moved to Pittsburgh.
As an engineer, Basil Levin was
employed with the steel industry. At one
point he was transferred to New Jersey
but returned to Pittsburgh.
As a youngster, Doron was active in
Jewish organizations. He was president
of his temple youth group and enjoyed
traveling to Israel.
In 1968, he was graduated from Mt.
Lebanon High School in Pittsburgh and
entered Cornell University. During his
junior year, he attended Hebrew
University. After graduating from
Cornell in 1972, he began working as a
journalist in Sarasota.
At age 22, he decided to live and
work in Israel. "My roots were in Israel.
Although, I never lived there, my
heritage was there?'
In Israel, he was eligible for the
draft and entered the army. He was in
the army for three years and was a
paratrooper in the Yom Kippur War. He
spent his last year in the army as a
press attache for the foreign press.
During this time, he met his wife
Adina, a captain in the army.
Reflecting on his war years, Levin
believes he was not a good soldier due
to his failure at regimentation. "I have
a healthy disrespect for authority. It's
great for a journalist and lousy for a
soldier?'
After the war, he and his wife
settled in the United States so he could
attend the Columbia School of
Journalism. After receiving a master's
degree he worked in Bradenton, Fla.,
and then at the St. Petersburg Times.
He began stringing for the Wall Street
Journal and received an offer to work
for the Journal based in Pittsburgh. He
lived in Pittsburgh for three years
before being transferred to Detroit.
While in Detroit, he often covered
automotive stories, including the merger
