Ex-Los Angeles Times editor John Carroll, 73, dies:

"John S. Carroll, who guided the Los Angeles Times, Baltimore Sun and Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentucky to Pulitzer Prizes and who was considered one of the most distinguished and inspiring newspaper editors of his time, died June 14 at his home in Lexington, Ky. He was 73.
"The cause was Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a rapidly progressing neurological disorder that was detected in January, said his wife, Lee Carroll."

He guided three newspapers to Pulitzer Prizes and was considered an inspiring force in the newsroom.
