When He's 106 Years Old, 'Pinch' Will Let You Read His Letters

Freed0m of information is a great love of the NYT.

Last summer, when The New York Times announced that it had donated its archives to the New York Public Library, publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. said in a press release, “We are delighted that the private New York Times archives will become part of the public repository of history.”
At least eventually it will. In a previously undisclosed agreement, The Times and the New York Public Library struck a deal whereby the personal papers of Arthur Ochs “Punch” Sulzberger and his son, the current publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr., will be kept private for decades; Punch’s would be locked away until 2035, and Mr. Sulzberger’s until 2057, when he’d turn 106
