CHICAGO — Sydney Harris, an author and syndicated columnist who brought a literary, reflective style to the pages of more than 200 daily newspapers, has died after heart surgery. He was 69.
Harris died Sunday at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Harris' column, "Strictly Personal," approached social and philosophical questions with an often wry, humanist style. His column treated readers to bits of knowledge and insight in a recurring feature titled, "Things I Learned En Route to Looking Up Other Things."
