Edwin Q. White, former AP chief in Saigon, dies

HONOLULU -- Edwin Q. White, who served as AP's Saigon bureau chief as the U.S. deployed massive numbers of combat troops to Vietnam, died before dawn Thursday at his home in Honolulu at age 90, his daughter Rachel White Watanabe said. He was part of a fabled crew of journalists who covered the war for the AP from Saigon, a thinning group that has seen five deaths this year.

Former AP Tokyo photo editor Hal Buell said White tightly bonded with colleagues in Asia and kept in touch long after they left the region to share a mutual affection for covering international news for AP.

“We never lost that feeling,” said Buell, who worked with White in Tokyo. “It was a brotherhood, simply put.”
