New York Times assistant managing editor Carolyn Lee leaves the paper next Friday. Executive editor Howell Raines says in a memo: “For just over 25 years, Carolyn Lee has been a powerful presence in the pages — and in the corridors — of this newspaper. As a recruiter, she was an early and forceful advocate of racial and gender diversity in the newsroom. As photo editor, she reorganized The Times picture desk operation, giving shape and voice to the desk as it exists today. And in 1990, as we all know, she became the first woman to serve on the newspaper’s news masthead.”
