Boston Globe has an obit.
UPDATE: Patrick O'Donnell, one of our most thoughtful and prolific commenters, adds this: "Despite his disease and retreat from public life, Lewis took the trouble to provide a generous blurb for Karen Houppert’s Chasing Gideon: The Elusive Quest for Poor People’s Justice (The New Press, 2013): “Chasing Gideon is a wonderful book, its human stories gripping, its insight into how our law is made profound. Fifty years after the Gideon case was decided by the Supreme Court, the struggle to give poor criminal defendants a fair chance in court is still being fought—by lawyers, judges, and an inspired writer, Karen Houppert.” Rick Perlstein has a nice tribute to the man at The Nation’s blog: http://www.thenation.com/blog/173511/anthony-lewis-1927-2013#
[Second Update. Comment from Stephen Gillers: "Here's my Tony Lewis story. A bunch of us were going to be on a Fred Friendly Ethics in America panel -- to be broadcast on PBS -- that was going to be taped in Oakland. We met at the Boston airport. Charlie Nesson was there and Tony and others and I had come up from NY to fly out with them. There was a major major major snowstorm in Boston and flights were delayed for many hours. (We were supposed to arrive in S.F. at noon and as it turned out we got there in the early morning of the next day.) After six hours or so of waiting, Tony decided he would not go. But he had a column due. This is before computers, cell phones, anything. He went to a phone booth and with a small sheet of paper as his guide, dictated his column. Just like that. Just spoke the column. I didn't hear it, but I saw him go in and out of the phone booth. Maybe he was in it 5-7 minutes. Is it possible to speak a 900 word finished column? I guess so. We made it to S.F. and then to Oakland. Scalia was on the panel (maybe there were two panels, I forget) and was wonderful, feisty, eager to engage, as always. You could easily like the guy. I can see why he and Ginsburg are good friends. Too bad he didn't stay in academia. But now I've gotten away from my Tony Lewis story."
