Not bad for an "Ink Stained Wretch"

Born in 1928 and raised in Albany’s North End, William Kennedy attended Public School 20, Christian Brothers Academy, and Siena College prior to pursuing a career in journalism.  He joined the Post Star in Glens Falls as a sports reporter and, after being drafted in 1950, worked for an Army newspaper in Europe.  Upon his discharge he joined the Albany Times Union as a reporter.  In 1956 he accepted a job with a newspaper in Puerto Rico, where he met and married Dana Sosa, a Broadway actress and dancer. The Kennedys have three children:  Dana, Katherine, and Brendan, and seven grandchildren.
