CT Journalism Hall of Fame: Pat Child
He covered most major news stories in the state during his remarkable career.
Child worked with dozens of reporters over his many years, often knowing as much or more about the personalities and the politics as they did.
His brother, Bob, also a news photographer, worked for the Associated Press. When an important news event occurred members of the press referred to it as a “two Child” story because both would be at the scene.
Pat covered everything. Hurricanes, blizzards, political conventions and day-to-day news stories. He retired, moved to Florida and died in 2004 at the age of 69.
