Memorial event for Eric David Talmadge

Tuesday, May 21, 7 pm - 9 pm

Remembering Eric David Talmadge - 1961-2019

A gathering to commemorate the life of Eric Talmadge, our former regular member and a veteran international correspondent, will be held at the Club on Tuesday, May 21.

As North Korea bureau chief for the Associated Press for the past several years, Eric tenaciously chronicled life and politics in one of the world's least-understood nations. He died last week in Yokohama, where he resided for many years, after suffering a heart attack while running. He was 57.

Members of Eric's family are expected to attend this event, and we hope many of his colleagues and friends will join us and share fond memories of Eric, who was a valued member of the Club between 1998 and 2016.

A finger food will be served, courtesy of the Club. Members can sign for drinks as usual. There will be a cash bar for non-members.

Eric joined the Club when he was serving as news editor at the Tokyo bureau of the Associated Press. He covered a wide range of stories and events, including disasters in Japan and Indonesia, war in Afghanistan and five Olympics. He was named the AP's chief of bureau in North Korea in 2013.

Please advise the Front Desk if you wish to attend, so that adequate catering measures can be taken.
